As much of the world has come to a standstill, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) marches on with the release of their new strategic plan for the next five years to both protect U.S. borders and facilitate trade. Within their mission statement are 12 key components that will enhance global economic competitiveness by enabling trade and travel.

The CBP’s 2020-2025 plan is expected to drive changes in many areas of trade including border flow, export privileges and denied party screening. But the CBP strategic plan is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to global trade – the 10% of the iceberg that you actually see. Below, there is a lot more going on that will be driven by these new changes that the CBP has just rolled out.

Watch our on-demand GTA webinar, Monitoring Global Trade Trends – Stay Ahead of the Curve, to learn about the changes that are happening in global trade both above and below the water, including:

  • How CBP is going to be driving what’s going on behind the scenes
  • New European export controls on face masks
  • Shifting targeting of travelers across CBP agencies
  • FIRRMA and the incomplete definition of critical technologies
  • Current global trade trends
  • Other changes in trade policies impacting analytics

Now is the time to get a complete view of the entire iceberg and protect your company and supply chain from what’s coming. e2open Global Trade Academy offers a variety of courses dedicated to all aspects of the international supply chain, including an Import/Export Auditing course.

We are also excited to announce that the Global Trade Academy has a new online home, on the e2open website. Find out what the GTA does, the online and e-Learning courses that are offered, and maybe sign up for one of our free monthly webinars!
