Meeting the Challenges of Global Retailing


January 09, 2013

Retailers are facing unprecedented challenges as they respond to rapid shifts in consumer behavior and economic forces. The recession, rising fuel and food prices, along with government-imposed austerity measures have decreased discretionary spending worldwide just as many retailers plan to open new bricks and mortar stores. Meanwhile, the rapid rise in online shopping has many retailers scrambling to broaden their business practices to the Internet.

Tapping into new and emerging markets and embracing e-commerce is crucial to continued retail growth. In particular, US retailers that are aggressively trying to grow their business outside the US must understand the global trade and compliance implications of opening stores and shipping goods to international locations.

A global trade management (GTM) system can streamline and automate the business processes associated with conducting global trade, including admissibility reviews, restricted party screening and landed cost calculations.

This eBook examines three distinct challenges faced by today’s retailers and how a global trade management system from Amber Road can help them succeed.

Almost all companies today are aware of their labor or material costs... but what about energy consumption? It all comes down to having the energy data needed to determine what actions you must take to improve. The payoff is worth it, as insight into energy data allows you to make more valuable, relevant operating decisions.

With lower energy prices sparking domestic economic gains, coupled with solid manufacturing and industrial production activity, improving jobs numbers, and a GDP number that shows progress, there is, or there should be, much to be enthused about when it comes to the economy and the economic recovery, which has been raised and discussed and dissected from basically every angle possible, it seems.
