Managing the movement of goods across different countries is always a complex and risky endeavor.
    Recent changes to various trade agreements, regulations and tariffs, particularly in the United States, have created an international trade environment that is more uncertain than ever. And because sourcing and shipping decisions are made on a long timeline, uncertainty creates increased risk in the form of unforeseen costs like increased duty payments, penalties for regulatory noncompliance and additional time and resources spent understanding and addressing these issues.
    Transportation management system provider MercuryGate will host a live webinar discussion at 2 p.m. EST Tuesday based on American Shipper research into how shippers, BCOs and freight forwarders can leverage technology to make better decisions faster in the face of this ever-evolving international trade environment and perhaps even plan ahead for potential future disruptions.
    Participants in the webinar are Carla Zubko, director of global solutions for MercuryGate; Kevin Shoemaker, vice president of global solutions at global trade management software provider Integration Point; and Ben Meyer, editor of American Shipper.
    Register now for the webinar, “Managing Transportation Through Today’s Trade Uncertainty,” to ensure your firm is using every available tool to mitigate risk and manage disruptions in your supply chain operations.
