Global Trade Management System

How It Works - Enabling Excellence via our Global Trade Management System

Descartes CustomsInfo™ solutions work in tandem to create an effective trade content solution for businesses. The data of individual countries populates our content update mechanism which, in turn, serves as the foundation for our global trade content platform.  The same data powers each of our global trade content offerings, including the most comprehensive HS tariff classification number database available with over 6 million reference documents.

Companies can select the global trade content of their choice via the method that best mirrors their needs. Our expert-driven content update mechanism connects to the largest repository of country data to drive international business.

Descartes CustomsInfo can power the following including:

Global Trade Management (GTM) Systems – Advanced solutions such as Oracle GTM can help businesses operate smoothly as goods move across borders.  Descartes CustomsInfo offers a range of content solutions including HTS Tables, Denied Party Screening (DPS) and other option to enhance the functionality of GTM platforms and deliver optimal results.
