Issues and Challenges

Identifying a potential trade agreement for a product is not enough to fully exercise an agreement's claim. Companies submitting the claim are required to provide supporting information and documentation. This includes specific details about product qualification (preference criteria, COO, etc.), product information and specific certificates of origin. This information varies from one agreement to another and can be difficult to manage and monitor within one product repository.


How Amber Road Can Help

Amber Road's Trade Automation solution provides a supporting page behind every agreement. This supporting page contains the specific "claim details", or data elements required to make a preferential claim for that specific agreement. By storing documentation in a central location, companies can better manage the agreement qualification process and respond quicker for any auditing purposes.

Duty Management

Free trade agreements such as NAFTA, CAFTA and others represent an attractive opportunity for exporters to grow their business overseas by making their products more affordable in growing markets. And for importers, FTAs allow them to dramatically lower the duties and taxes they pay.

Today there are more than 500 free or preferential agreements around the world for companies to use.
