SAP GTS Implementation 

The SAP system for Global Trade Services (GTS) provides a stand-alone technical solution for implementing internal compliance processes and automating global trade transactions. GTS can be used to manage numerous business partners and documents and ensure that your company always complies with constantly changing international legal regulations. This is because the databases that GTS uses to compare legal bases, sanctions and classifications are regularly updated and save internal documentation or time-consuming information searches.
The system supports global trade activities with the tools to participate in the modernized systems and electronic communication pathways of government and customs authorities. This avoids costly delays and financial risks associated with imports or exports and opens up new international business opportunities.

Obstacles of International Trade Relations


Rapid pace of global trade, but goods exports take too long
