Global Trade Considerations

Develop strategies to mitigate risk and maximize profits in a shifting political landscape

Challenge:

Navigating the global trade environment has become increasingly challenging as major world economies adopt policies to protect their domestic manufacturing industries. Actual and potential changes in duties, tariffs, taxes and regulations are forcing supply chain leaders to evaluate if changes in their sourcing/production strategies are needed.

Solution:

The llama.ai platform provides the tools needed to understand the potential impact of global trade policies to effectively operate or alter your supply chain. You will be able to make decisions based on total cost to serve including explicit consideration of duties, tariffs and taxes while respecting local requirements through the use of network optimization analytics.

  • Optimize product flow for SKUs in the network considering global trade costs and regulations
  • Evaluate if existing network capacity and capabilities should be changed to reflect potential or actual changes in global trade policies
  • Proactively understand the effect of global trade policy changes on your supply chain and simulate your decisions prior to execution

Develop margin preservation and risk mitigation strategies – even in times of shifting political landscapes. Analyze potential scenarios and prepare for execution so you’re ready ahead of policy changes.
