Learn about functionality that enhances the transactions and document processing of export and import compliance and declarations. Understand the new plug-in that allows you to manage an SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services-specific implementation or upgrade independent of other functions or modules. In addition, see how to perform shipment consolidation for better management and cost savings.
Key Concept

Within the SAP system, key functions and activities are registered as documents — for example, a sales order for acknowledging the sales contract between a company and a customer or a purchase order contract for goods or services between a company and a vendor. Documents are key in performing compliance checks from trade services for routes, hazardous substance checks, or inbound delivery import compliance checks.

SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services version 8.0 features enhancements with transactional processing. Some of the key features and functionalities include:

  • Export compliance check on outbound sales transactions based on routes
  • New plug-in
  • Shipment consolidation
  • Hazardous substance check
  • Inbound deliveries compliance check
