International trade has become an increasingly visible topic, impacting global businesses and economies, but your supply chain could be in jeopardy without the proper global trade services in place. SAP’s Linda McKee and Trond Rovang joins us to discuss how these two functions go hand in hand, and how trade services can not only support top line growth, but drive global compliance.
Come join us as we discuss the Future of Supply Chain.
