QAD Precision Global Trade and Transportation Benchmarking Modules

GLOBAL TRADE MANAGEMENT

Global shippers need to efficiently manage trade operations. Customs hold up will damage customer relationships and your reputation. This module looks at critical GTM issues including import and export compliance, communications and reporting to customs authorities as well as licensing.

TRADE COMPLIANCE

Whether you ship container freight, pallets or parcels, each and every shipment must be checked against denied party lists and be compliant with current trade regulations. The trade compliance module covers critical issues such as trade content, denied party screening and compliance audit trails.

 

TRANSPORTATION OPERATIONS

Ensuring your goods reach your customers in a timely and cost-effective manner is crucial to all global shippers. This module will help you uncover areas where improved processes will result in lower costs, increased efficiencies, and a better ROI on logistics spend.

FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) abolish or reduce import tariffs on selected goods traded between signatory countries. Leveraging FTAs can give manufacturers and importers a competitive edge when their goods qualify for preferential treatment. This module looks at whether your organization is receiving the full benefit of the FTAs available to you.

FREIGHT BILL AUDITING

Transporting goods from point A to B can be an expensive business. Companies that process a high volume of freight bills without auditing them are very likely to be overpaying by a significant amount without realizing it. This module looks at freight auditing processes to see if your organization is controlling logistics spend.

CUSTOMS AUDIT

A customs audit attempts to verify whether an organization is in compliance with customs legislation. This module looks at the impact of a customs audit on your business.

DUTY DRAWBACK

This module looks at duty drawback activities. Companies entitled to duty drawback but not claiming it are leaving money on the table.

RECORD-KEEPING

Global trade and shipping comes with a ton of regulation, paperwork and record-keeping rules. This module examines if there are gaps in your record-keeping processes.
