Ahhh, that day finally comes when you start to actually feel in control of your shipments. You implemented your global trade management platform, it’s integrated into your ERP system and every material, every shipment and every business partner is getting screened. Life is good! (Your promotion to Chief Compliance Officer is just around the corner.)
That is until you receive your Notice of Action – the dreaded CF 29 – from Customs because they declared your samples (that DON’T go through your Global Trade Management system) misclassified and you face the potential of fines and penalties.
Dope – there goes that promotion!
So how can you avoid this?
Leverage Komply™ – the trade compliance solution that lets you manage all of your non-inventory shipments with the same level of trade compliance control as the rest of your business.
Komply™ allows engineers, scientists, marketing personnel and even your vendors and distributors, who do not use your company’s ERP system to easily enter their shipment information on a web page or even mobile device, have it screened, classified and licensed before it ships out.
This creates a “one stop shop” for all import and export activities, no matter which part of your supply chain the shipment is originated from. Even ad-hoc and one-time shipments and business partners can be created and controlled by your global trade team without interrupting the smooth flow of your business.
Komply™ takes full advantage of the trade policies and procedures you’ve already established in your SAP GTS (and more Global Trade Management systems coming soon) system so you can rest more comfortably knowing all of your business is fully compliant
