Throughout its 18 years of partnership, the Renault-Nissan Alliance has harnessed its unique business model to increase the value of both companies. Together, Renault-Nissan’s value has expanded on a global level—collectively operating in 122 manufacturing plants around the world with Renault headquartered in Paris, France and Nissan in Yokohama, Japan. As one of the largest global automakers, the Alliance began to recognize missed opportunities with preferential duties and struggled to ensure free trade agreement compliance.

The Alliance will use Amber Road’s Trade Automation solution to ensure compliance with free trade agreements and maximize its utilization of preferential duties. The solution will support import/export processes from European, Turkish and Moroccan sites, taking into account over 40 Free Trade Agreements.
