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.

Begin With a Control Tower & End With Enhanced Supply Chain Visibility

Posted by Paris Riley

What is supply chain visibility? Depending on where you go and whom you ask, the answer might differ. True end-to-end visibility extends beyond just tracking containers and shipping logistics. It disrupts the traditional corporate information silos and provides company-wide transparency that can greatly improve the global trade management process. Often, the given definition of supply chain visibility fails to encompass the essence of "true visibility," like what you achieve in a supply chain control tower scenario.

Amber Road’s new eBook, Creating the Global Supply Chain Control Tower – Beyond Simple Visibility, discusses the often muddled definition of supply chain visibility and the breadth of benefits that come from creating a digital global supply chain control tower. The four key benefits from this level of visibility includes:
