East Rutherford, N.J.—Aug. 14, 2013—Amber Road, a provider of global trade management solutions, announced that Oxbow Carbon, a large recycler and distributor of refinery byproducts, increased its RPS productivity by 82 percent using Amber Road’s Export On-Demand solution.

Amber Road’s solutions enable Oxbow to centralize and automate its export compliance processes across 90 countries and screen against more than 250 lists. Using Amber Road’s hosted technology, Oxbow consolidated 13 ERP systems into one common database portal, creating a simplified and efficient trade compliance process.
