Manufacturer Improves Strategic Supply and Demand Chain with Amber Road

Challenge: This global leader in power and automation technologies operates in 100 countries and managed its international trade using a partly decentralized model. However, as the company grew and new trade agreements were ratified, their supply chain became more complex.

Solution: The manufacturer chose to implement two solutions from Amber Road: Trade Planner and Trade Wizards. By providing detailed analyses and graphical comparisons of international shipping costs, Trade Planner allowed the company to explore different supply chain scenarios to take into account total landed costs, export and import regulations, preferential trade agreements, and more. Trade Wizards assisted with restricted party screening and documentation, reducing commercial and legal risks.

Results: With increased awareness and utilization of preferential customs tariffs, the company receives faster and more accurate quotations for all modes of transport and Incoterms. They also have improved visibility into total landed costs and enjoy integration of trade compliance considerations in logistics processes.

About the Solution Provider: Amber Road's (NYSE: AMBR) mission is to improve the way companies manage their international supply chains and conduct global trade. As a leading provider of cloud based global trade management (GTM) solutions, we automate the global supply chain across sourcing, logistics, cross-border trade, and regulatory compliance activities to dramatically improve operating efficiencies and financial performance.
