Global Trade: Why Content Matters

Posted by Kelsey Barker on Thu, Apr, 3 2014 @ 1:32 PM

Successful global supply chains require timely access to complete and accurate global trade content. Content isn't just data, though -  content combines logic with data, automating rules with data to keep companies in compliance.

For example, calculating the landed cost of a good requires not only knowledge of the harmonized tariff schedule (HTS),  the duties and fees – among other pieces of information-- associated with the item, but also the applying algorithms (the logic) to the information to calculate that cost. Similarly, simply knowing an Export Classification Number won’t tell you whether you need a license to ship an item.

The “Look” of Retail at NRF Big Show 2014

Posted by Gary M. Barraco on Mon, Jan, 20 2014 @ 11:04 AM

Wrapping up my 8th Big Show in NYC last week, I reflected on the ebb and tides the show has taken and how much the industry is truly reflected in the activities of the event. The roller coaster ride for US retailers and brands is just like the weather each year at the Big Show – this year we had warm weather and drizzle compared to the year’s past where trudging to the Javits Center on thick layers of ice was the norm, and the freezing cold blasts off the Hudson just part of “the experience”. The economic downturn in 2010 meant that this (an almost every retail event in the country) was poorly attended back then. But in 2012 the show was overwhelmed by the comeback and flocks waited for hours to get into the show.

Japan and India Ink FTA

Posted by Annika Helmrich on Thu, Feb, 24 2011 @ 5:26 AM

India and Japan signed a free trade agreement February 16th, eliminating tariffs on 94% of goods between the two countries within ten years and making the two countries each other’s biggest free-trade partners. The two are now Asia's second and third largest economies after China. The deal comes as Japan looks to expand its markets and improve its competitiveness in relation to South Korea and China, reported the Wall Street Journal. India anticipates the Free Trade Agreement will not only increase its exports but gain the country access to cheaper imports. The FTA is Japan’s twelfth, reported the Journal of Commerce. Currently two-way trade between the two countries totals less than one percent of Japan’s total foreign trade.
