Improve efficiency, gain real-time insight into core logistics processes and achieve adherence to legal/customs requirements.

Global Trade Management is proving to be your key solution to reduce end-to-end logistics costs, simplify complex supply chain networks and ensure compliance in diverse markets.

Whilst every oil and gas business acknowledges the importance of trade compliance, many also view compliance as being defined by what can’t be done rather than what can.

We know that trade compliance at it’s best is really trade management – managing opportunity as well as risk, demonstrating the impact of what we do and adding real business value. However, with so many functions competing for management attention, it’s clear that trade compliance needs to work smarter to deliver results, and ultimately get the attention, investment – and recognition – it deserves.

That’s where the 2nd Annual Global Trade Management Forum comes in. We’ve worked closely with oil and gas trade management leaders to develop a forum for those who strive to do more to add value to the wider business. A forum which addresses trade management as a value-add rather than just a support function or cost centre.

This is that conference, and it’s been designed as a platform for those who are passionate about delivering profitable and efficient, as well as compliant global trade.

Maximize the effectiveness of your key trade management strategies through a shared knowledge exchange with global decision makers from leading oil, gas and petrochemical companies and you will learn critical lessons from world leading experts on how to:

  • Deploy GTM as a strategic tool to integrate and manage import / export processes and logistics and boost end-to-end visibility and efficiency
  • Develop an effective and traceable end-to-end compliance strategy for cross-border trade by using GTM to manage complex international logistics networks
  • Respond in real-time to unexpected routing changes, amends to orders and fluctuating customer demands to increase responsiveness while lowering logistics costs
  • Strengthen internal partnerships with key stakeholders to fully embed your GTM strategy
  • Implement GTM processes to reduce risk, liability and shipment delays
