The Evolution of Supply Chain Visibility and Total Landed Cost in the Global Supply Chain

Global shippers are well aware of the number of new trade agreements being inked that will make it easier for U.S. organizations to not only source product from emerging markets, but also open the door to deliver goods into quickly growing consumer bases.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is making more headlines.

The TPP, which should have gone down as one of the biggest trade deals in history, would have had an impact on an area that includes more than 40 percent of the global economy.

At the same time, smaller, yet similar agreements to TPP could be opening up golden opportunities for global shippers in new regions while simultaneously adding a layer of logistics complexity that many have never faced. 

With that in mind, Logistics Management designed a special issue to help shippers overcome the mounting challenges facing global logistics operations.

Key topics include:

  • A case study of how NCR put a global trade management (GTM) solution to work to get a handle on its total landed costs worldwide
  • Strategies for mitigating global supply chain risk
  • A comprehensive dive into the state of GTM functionality and benefits
