Business description: XPORTA provides a unique Global Sourcing solution that combines Global Trade Intelligence with Optimization to enable companies to increase their gross margins and reduce their costs of goods sold by 10 to 15% by executing optimal global sourcing strategies. The XPORTA solution allows companies to examine all facets of their cross border transactions to ensure that the actual, bottom-line Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is minimized on an enterprise wide basis. Shipping charges, handling and document fees, duties, taxes and other related direct and indirect costs can vary wildly even on the same product destined for the same market, based on different manufacturing origins. Whether a company is opening or closing plants, implementing strategic sourcing initiatives, or making tactical short term changes to global supply lines for circumventing terrorism induced disruptions, XPORTA accurately models the internal and external effects of these costs for the multiple scenarios under consideration, simultaneously!
