Trade 3.0: The Evolution of Global Trade From Cost Center to Business Leader

Insights into the Development of the Trade Compliance Function


The worldwide proliferation of trade agreements, regulations, controls, and enforcement has moved the Global Trade function from a corporate support function to a strategy leader, business enabler, and driver of growth. We suggest that:

Trade 1.0 focuses on defining the Global Trade value proposition and “getting a seat at the table”.

Trade 2.0 has been defined through the use of automation to support mature processes and capabilities, lower costs, and provide business visibility and intelligence.

Trade 3.0 will be defined by the integration of your Global Trade function with your end-to-end business functions and your success in positioning Trade as fundamental and strategic driver of company-wide execution and growth.

Understanding and managing this transition is imperative for Global Trade professionals looking to build their Global Trade functions, striving to build their careers, and drive C-level decision-making. This forward-thinking program will highlight:

  • Trends on positioning the trade team and changes of the trade function, considering Trade 3.0 as:
    • Strategic positioning: Cross-enterprise integration of Global Trade
    • Business driver: Know your company and enable its business
    • Business leader: Expected hallmarks of a successful Trade 3.0 function
  • Extending trade to new business markets
  • M&A and new business modules (Trade involvement at early stage, cross function work)

Who Will Benefit: Trade Compliance Professionals, Import and Export Managers, General Counsel, Logistics, and Supply Chain
