Instead, global trade volumes fluctuated and consumer spending diminished, worldwide protectionism and de-globalization became evident and supply chain risks were enhanced, which left importers and exporters scrambling to stay on course.

As we move into 2017, global trade management executives need to brace against disrupters that have the potential to send supply chains into a tailspin. The industry must address the same imperatives — speed, quality, cost, risk and agility — yet doing it alone isn’t an option.

What just happened? The global trade landscape changed dramatically when the enervating U.S. Presidential election ended. While the results shocked many around the world, the potential shifts in trade policies under President-Elect Trump are obvious.  Even in the first few days following his win, direct and unmistakable anti-trade sentiments have resounded from the incoming leader.
