Tracking and Reducing Transportation Emissions: Better Data, Better Decisions, and Better Compliance
Talk of greenhouse gas emissions seems to be everywhere today, from the shop floor to the boardroom. Not only do emissions factor heavily into the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics investors care about, but it looks ever-more-likely that being a carbon emitter will soon have a direct economic cost.

Why is the number of partners actively selling increasing in this model? And what does it take to make it work for a company?
Supply chain traceability has long been a niche need for companies that wanted extra quality control measures, sought to avoid import tariffs, or wanted to qualify their imports for preferential trade status.

Organizations like the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), UK National Crime Agency (NCA) and others are working to ensure that businesses do not engage in bribery as a means to obtain or retain business.

The long-awaited changes by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to modernize trade through the 21st Century Customs Framework (21CCF) are soon likely to be law. The impact will be substantial and widespread, using technology, transparency, and seamless data sharing to improve the flow of legitimate trade while targeting and enforcing compliance against unfair trade practices and high-risk importers. These changes will also have major implications for licensed customs brokers and U.S. importers of all types and sizes. Don’t be caught unaware!
