Global trade management
Mitigate Risk & Maintain Ongoing Compliance
Stay vigilant with our expertise, process, and technology.
Global Trade Management (GTM) refers to the management of global trade operations (Import & Export activities) related to customs and regulatory compliance, trade financing, and global logistics.
We take care of the details so you can focus on your business.
Many companies refer to GTM as their compliance program. This can include but is not limited to worldwide product classifications, restricted party screening, license determination, Free Trade Agreement (FTA) management, foreign trade zones management, duty drawback, export controls, and import & export documentation and data management.
To manage their import and export trade operations to mitigate risk, drive operational efficiencies, and improve collaboration and communication with trade partners, vendors, customers, and internally, most companies have implemented GTM software. Unlike many other software solutions that typically reduce workloads, most implemented GTM software solutions drive more significant data volumes as companies identify and address risks, gaps, and operational challenges to ensure ongoing compliance. As a result, too many companies lack the in-house expertise and bandwidth to keep up with the demands of managing trade compliance.
The challenges of supporting GTM are many:
Customs, tariffs, trade policies, and regulations are ever-changing, which requires expertise and bandwidth.
Every company has a different global footprint, business, industry, and compliance requirements and trading partners that must be supported as part of their GTM or compliance program.
Every company has a different technology footprint and configuration/integration of GTM technology to support their program.
Support of GTM or compliance programs involves the complexities of languages, currencies, time zones, and currencies.

Managed Services Programs
Managed Services Programs have become a vital component of strategic compliance programs as companies are forced to reduce staffing budgets, pay more for compliance expertise, and limit technology spending while keeping up with the pace of their business objectives and compliance requirements. Vigilant offers client-specific programs, so that you can design a program with as few as one support service or as many as needed to keep you compliant.
