CROSSOVER: How, Why, ROI – Trade Compliance across the Company

CROSSOVER: How, Why, ROI – Trade Compliance across the Company

Tuesday, February 14, 2023 (11:30 AM - 4:00 PM) (CST)


Trade compliance is at the core of import/export operations. It supports successful global trade throughout all disciplines- sales, logistics/transportation, finance, legal, R & D/engineering procurement, I.T., supply chain, customer service!  Compliance is a partner but too often seen as a barrier.

 Is there a good strategy and practical approach that moves compliance from the sidelines to the front row across all the functional areas of the company?  Can you demonstrate the ROI of good trade compliance? How do you gain the commitments required to achieve it?

Presenters will share integration approaches and must-know tips to increase the compliance voice with other departments strengthening the company’s overall trade agenda. Then, share and explore experiences in Strategic Networking with the speakers and with peer leaders in the compliance community. Discuss how-to’s, challenges / solutions for improving the company’s understanding of your role and hot topics. 

Strategic Networking will be the winner’s circle of the day!
