"Continuous Improvement & Global Trade Strategies"
A strategic perspective on global trade
Continuous improvement in the realm of strategic planning and supply chain development plays a very big important role becasue it allows us to address some very important issues that are usually identified but rarely acted upon. One of these is : "How do we get the most value out of our network? And if so, how do we tackle the most important issues that are of startegic importance to us?". It is in this view that I plan to uncover some really important issues that to me are of strategic importance for your organization.
International Strategic Planning encompasses new strategies for developing international markets and gain a foothold in the chosen overseas market. An internationalization strategy is usually made of different components and decisions about internationalization are a strategic choice and are critical to firms' growth. This requires partnerships and setting up operations in foreign countries. Usuallly, my clients, require help in operating overseas (due to constrained financial and manpower resources) or require market knowledge in order to operate viably overseas. The supply chain of the future needs to be resilient and capable to absorb 'shocks' across the globe.
Overseas Market Entry:
Customs Regulations: customs and trade compliance is one of the most important operational elements of a successful internationalization strategy. I have experienced a myriad of different situations where customs authorities played a key role in the successful introduction of a new or existing product to an overseas market.

Global logistics network: I specialize in dry and containerized cargo, cold chain and temperature comtrolled, break bulk and over dimensional freight. Different types of cargo require different logistical infrastructures and I can advise you how to operate them efficiently. Selection of the suitable combination of logistics providers and negotiation of rates in line with market trends are juts two of the most important decisions you will need to take to operate efficiently at a global level.
