Webinar: How Will Changing Trade Policies Impact Your Global Supply Chain?

Posted by Paris Riley

How will your company handle trade policy changes? From the latest trade restrictions on the import of solar panels and washing machines, to ongoing NAFTA renegotiations, extensive policy changes are underway. A recent survey of more than 500 global logistics executives found that shippers are divided on the potential outcome of US free trade agreements negotiations and are generally unsure what to expect. Others are scrambling to deal with unexpected trade regulations that have shaken their industries to the very core.  

Amber Road wants to help you navigate these changes. Currently, there are eight major policy initiatives in review that could be a big adjustment for importers – affecting both the bottom line and key business practices.

Join Amber Road’s Global Trade Academy as we explore the major changes that should be on your radar during our webinar, The Great Trade Pivot: Changing Policies and Their Impact on Your Global Supply Chain, broadcasting live on Wednesday, February 7 at 2pm EST.

Supply Chain Visibility Win: Quality is in the ‘Sole’ for this Footwear Company

Posted by Paris Riley

Manufacturing can be a risky business. In fact, Whirlpool is currently facing a possible product recall of up to one million dryers due to a defect. What if there was a way to improve quality control in product testing and reduce defect rates at the same time? One leading footwear manufacturer has been making shoes since the late 1800s, but struggled with an 8% product defect rate for years before implementing Amber Road.

Their high defect rate mainly stemmed from a lack of visibility into their supply chain and a disparate supplier base. Amber Road's supply chain collaboration platform enabled this major footwear manufacturer to improve quality and visibility in their supply chain, leading to a significant reduction of claims and defect rates and ultimately reduced risk.

Amber Road’s new Customer Value Summary, Quality is in the ‘Sole’ for this Footwear Company, details their triumphant fight against high defect rates and for greater supply chain agility.
