Why Does Product Testing Matter?

Posted by Kelsey Barker

As protectionism continues to rise across the world, the chance of having your goods stopped at the border increases as well. There are volumes of legal documentation and a corps of agents enforcing regulations in each country all over the word. These rules are in place for many reasons: protecting against terrorism, consumer safety, balancing trade, and generating revenue, to name a few. 

In particular, a lack of testing and certification that should occur well before the goods are shipped often leads to improper or incomplete documentation and can cause shipment delays.

Amber Road's eBook, Stopped at the Border: Why Product Testing Matters, explores how to combat border delays through rigorous product testing.

Brexit: Journey to the Unknown

Posted by Arne Mielken

On March 29, 2019 the United Kingdom will leave the European Union – and with it the customs union, the EU’s common commercial policy and the European single market, which had hitherto committed the UK to the free movement of labor. Yet with Brexit only some months away, future customs arrangements between the negotiating parties remain totally unpredictable. The uncertainty is poison to global trade.

When we leave the EU, we will also leave the EU Customs Union.”

This was the guiding principle under which the United Kingdom, on its way out of the European Union, first submitted ideas about a future customs collaboration with the EU, including the outline of an independent customs bill.
