Integration Point Hosts Free, Educational Webcast on Managing Trade Compliance in Asia-Pacific for Japanese Companies

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2015) -  Companies headquartered or with business units in Japan are facing a situation of declining population and a shrinking of the domestic market. This decline is causing more Japanese companies to engage in international markets beyond those in the Asia-Pacific region. With the development of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), the finalization of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and the continuous amendment of other existing Asian free trade agreements, the ability to create and maintain a flexible, dependable and optimized supply chain has waned.

On Tuesday, 20 October at 14:00 Japan Standard Time (JST), Integration Point will host a 60-minute webcast on how Japanese companies, as well as those with Japanese locations, can manage trade compliance in Asia-Pacific. During the webcast, presenters will discuss how these changing dynamics in the Asian trade environment affect Japanese companies and how it is more critical now than ever before to manage Customs compliance in an automated fashion.

Other topics that will be covered during the webcast include:

  • Evaluating bills of materials using IT tools
  • Managing Customs valuation in BEPs times
  • Using trade data to effectively manage trade compliance
  • Utilizing automation technology to screen and review trade data effectively
