International Trade Management has become more complex than ever due to the ever-changing trade compliance requirements and the rapidly expanding networks of foreign traders and supply chain partner ecosystem. Add to that the increasing demand for speed and frictionless transactions of both B2B and B2C customers as well as the growing skills gap.
SAP GTS has been a helpful tool for businesses that want to simplify their global trade processes. But customers that have already migrated or planning to migrate to S/4HANA can take advantage of a S/4HANA embedded foreign trade management solution to reap the unique benefits that S/4HANA provides.
