Open Harbor, a global trade management services provider, has released two products designed to make international trade easier for multinationals and reduce costs in the process.
The first product, Global Security and Compliance, will assist corporations in complying with trade regulations and security from order receipt to shipment delivery.
The second product, Global Brokerage, reduces inefficiencies by streamlining interactions between brokers and businesses.
Historically, customers and their brokers have communicated via telephone and fax machines, methods that have resulted in frequent errors, delays and incomplete data. But with this new service, customers can eliminate paperwork by automating those manual tasks.
Now customers can check compliance, classify goods, and generate relevant documents and file them electronically with government agencies, said chief executive officer Chris Erickson.
