ABB, a leader in power and automation technologies, needed to streamline their global trade management processes. The company had become increasingly globalized, resulting in more complexity for their supply and demand chains. ABB implemented Amber Road's Trade Planner and Trade Wizards solutions. Trade Planner allows the company to explore different supply chain scenarios that take into account total landed costs, export and import regulations, and preferential trade agreements. Meanwhile, the Trade Wizards application backs up ABB's restricted party screening efforts, and ensures that documentation and legal requirements are met.
By implementing Amber Road’s solutions, ABB was able to:
Increase awareness and utilization of preferential customs tariffs
Generate quotations for all modes of transport and Incoterms faster and more accurately
Improve visibility into total landed costs
Integrate trade compliance considerations into logistics processes
