The trade environment and demands on trade compliance professionals have been changing at a rapid pace. If supply chain disruptions, regulatory updates, and digital transformation efforts have taught us anything, it is that we need to redefine and refresh the traditional outlook on Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) operations and ask ourselves: Is our FTZ operating model (1) in the conversation and (2) changing in lockstep?
Join us for this one-hour TradeWatch webcast which will focus on trends and transitions of compliance support models to discover fresh ways to operate FTZs in this new trade environment. KPMG professionals from the Trade & Customs practice will discuss the following topics:
- Trends in trade compliance support models: From enterprise-wide transformations to labor shortages, trade compliance programs are adapting to new operating models;
- Recap of FTZ benefits: Traditional benefits remain, but companies are looking more to the FTZ operating model as a fresh way to alleviate some of the new and increasing demands that threaten supply chain resiliency;
- FTZ support models: Explore the benefits and capabilities that drive an effective resource support model – insourced, co-sourced, outsourced;
- Transitioning to third party provider: Approach to effectively transiting FTZ operations to a third-party provider, and clearly establishing tasks, timelines, and roles and responsibilities during transition and beyond.
