New White Paper - How Are Companies Using Technology to Address Global Trade Woes?

Posted by Lacey Pierce on Tue, Feb, 19 2019 @ 10:00 AM

2019 was filled with turbulence, both in the geopolitical sphere and the technological one. This created waves throughout the supply chain and trade industry. AAEI and Amber Road worked together on their 3rd Annual Trade Trends Report to determine how companies in the industry are using supply chain technology. Are companies focused on automating previously manual processes? Are they simply using technology to collect data? By interviewing over 100 supply chain professionals, we hope to answer these questions and allow other professionals in the industry to use this data as a benchmark or as a source of data to make informed decisions for their company.

Supply Chain 4.0, otherwise known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, has been at the forefront of the industry’s mind. With companies experiencing the backlash of the “Amazon Effect,” they are looking to technology to help them meet the 6 “Rs” of supply chain execution. The “Rs” are the right partner, with the right product, at the right price, in the right place, and right time with the right compliance. This is what companies who want to compete in evolving markets are focused on.

Webinar: How Are Shippers Using Technology to Address Global Trade Woes?

Posted by Kelsey Barker on Fri, Feb, 8 2019 @ 1:40 PM

Global trade has never been as ubiquitous as it is today. Technology of all kinds – from transportation tech like containerization, cargo aircraft, and supermax vessels all the way to the digital global e-commerce marketplace – facilitates an unprecedented flow of products around the world. At the same time, tariff and sanction shifts have become the main enemy of the supply chain manager, who relies on consistency and certainty to plan and execute global trade.

Next week's webinar on February 14 seeks to answer the question: How can we leverage technology to overcome emerging and enduring global supply chain management risks? Amber Road and AAEI conducted a survey of supply chain professionals involved with global trade in order to gain a clearer picture of the primary challenges facing the community, and how their companies are using technology to address these challenges.

2018 is fading fast. Even though global trade and commerce has been lively all year, not all regions and industries are seeing a comparable benefit. US consumer spending continued to rise which inspired hope for companies in some industries, while the on-going tariff battles are causing other companies to make dramatic shifts in production and sourcing. As we look ahead to 2019, companies with global supply chains must remain vigilant with this unexpected mix of improvement and disruption.

Blockchain & Purchase Orders - A Match Made in Heaven?

Posted by Paris Riley on Thu, Oct, 18 2018 @ 9:14 AM

Global trade and global trade management are becoming increasingly more complex without the right tools on hand. The solution to navigating the numerous potential complications and their impact on supply chains worldwide has always been technology in the form of a digitized supply chain. If you haven't heard, the big new thing in technology right now is blockchain. But how could this work in the supply chain?

As we delve deeper into blockchain’s potential capabilities and uses, we’ve found that one thing remains the same – blockchain for the supply chain just seems to make sense.
