With large manufacturers sourcing materials from all over the world while simultaneously trying to tap new markets and ship finished goods into more countries, globalization is here to stay. A globalized supply chain brings a wealth of new opportunities, as well as a high degree of risk, uncertainty and complexity – exacerbated by an increasingly globally regulated landscape littered with stringent, ever-changing compliance regulations – with multiple millions of dollars and corporate reputations at stake.
Manufacturers who lack systems and processes for the efficient globalization of products and meeting global compliance regulations waste significant time and money bringing products to market and also risk severe damage to product brand and corporate reputation, as well as large fines.
