Marilyn Dykstra, Project Manager Global Logistics, Trade and Compliance, Haworth, Inc.

 

Challenge: 

A $1.4bn global leader in office furniture and interiors, Haworth needed a way to automate the process of qualifying goods for NAFTA preferential trade terms for exporting from both the US and Canada.

Haworth selected Amber Road to manage its NAFTA certification data across 1,000+ suppliers worldwide, analyze 16,000 products and ensure compliance with all US Customs export regulations. Delivered on-demand as a web portal, the solution automates solicitation and management of qualification data from suppliers as well as integrating with Haworth's order management, warehouse management, and ERP systems.

  • Realized $1.2m Free Trade Gains
