The automotive industry encompasses companies that design, develop, manufacture, market and sell motor vehicles and automotive parts. The United States ranks second in the world when it comes to volume produced annually. While foreign and domestic automotive firms manufacture and assemble products in the United States, countries such as Canada, Mexico and Japan are popular production sites as well.
To stay competitive with China, Japan and others, U.S. firms must source production internationally to take advantage of free trade agreements and lower material and labor costs. Yet, they must move products quickly and inexpensively from foreign destinations. Technology is essential to manage processes – logistics, regulatory, financial – and enhance collaboration among supply chain partners, so goods can reach their destination in a timely, secure and cost-effective manner.
QuestaWeb offers automotive companies an integrated suite of global trade management (GTM) solutions specifically designed to meet their unique needs and requirements. Our global trade management software promotes product movement in the most secure, visible and compliant manner possible, while monitoring applicable laws and preferential programs and advising users on anticipated costs in real time. Built-in flexibility enables QuestaWeb’s global trade management solutions for importers, exporters, foreign trade zone operators/managers, brokers and forwarders to adapt to your business processes, rather than force you to adopt ours. Plus, QuestaWeb offers an integrated global trade compliance solution for all of North America, allowing U.S. companies manufacturing in Canada and in Mexico’s maquiladora industry the chance to use a single system to conduct compliant trade on both sides of the border.
