Features of the service

Ensuring that a company is sufficiently compliant with the new FTA/EPA is expected to require months to nearly a year of preparation. This service also enables the comparison and analysis of future FTA-based tariffs and enables decision-making about whether the elimination or reduction of tariffs is immediately and directly beneficial and effective.
When providing this service, we visualize the customer’s global supply chain and optimize the product procurement routes and product manufacturing hubs in pursuit of the co-creation of new value as we work as our customers’ business partner.
