See clearly, act confidently

Global trade involves managing sophisticated supply chain operations and a constantly changing interplay of factors around imports, including customs, tariff updates, compliance risks and regulatory changes. To master this complexity, you need a clear view of precisely what’s going on.

We use machine learning in combination with advanced global trade analytics and supply chain analytics to evaluate transactional trade data from different sources. The result is better transparency: suddenly you’ll clearly see your opportunities to save and ways to hedge compliance risks for cross-border transactions.

In addition to this, we draw on customs administration, broker and/or master data to analyse a selection of trade indicators across all your geographies. Once you see the results in meaningful, interactive visualisations, you’ll be able to draw rapid conclusions about where things aren’t running as they should be, and how you can respond.

What we can do for you

  • Analyse authority, broker and client data
  • Spot inefficiencies and non-compliance

  • Analyse the effects of changes in your supply chain and product design
