Fairchild Semiconductor experienced rapid global expansion, completing eleven acquisitions in only seven years. As a result, the company needed an effective global trade management strategy to ensure it maintained efficient, compliant cross-border transactions while moving 17 billion units across 45 countries per year.
Implementing Amber Road's Trade Automation solution allowed Fairchild Semiconductor to simplify their shipment process, automate trade documentation, and enable online restricted party screening. This project resulted in the following benefits:
Enhanced efficiency and dependability of trade compliance processes
Improved pre-clearance of cross-border shipments to 90%
Reduced transit times and shipment delays
Minimized inventory carrying costs
We’ve simplified our shipment process, automated documentation and trade party screening, and now have the ability to consistently control the regulatory and financial implications of our international shipments.
