Trading Places: How customs agencies must secure trade in the digital world

Trade is going digital; find out how customs agencies must adapt to a new set of stakeholders.

Overview

Trading Places

How can customs agencies secure trade in the digital world?

The world of trade is being transformed as consumers and businesses switch to digital media, digital goods and ecommerce sites in place of physical goods traded from bricks-and-mortar stores. As sophistication improves and prices fall, new digital design and manufacturing techniques such as 3D printing are disrupting international trade supply chains based on the movement of physical goods.

To stay relevant and effective customs agencies must adapt to this new reality and plan, scope and build networks with a whole new set of stakeholders if they are to continue protecting their nations and citizens from the harmful effects of illicit goods—delivering public service for the future.

The traditional supply chain is broken. Customs agencies must now build links with a new set of stakeholders if they are to secure trade successfully. By taking urgent action, customs agencies can set the agenda and take a leading role in how we secure the new digital supply chain—delivering public service for the future.
