East Rutherford, N.J.—May 15, 2013—Under a new contract, provider of global trade management (GTM) solutions Amber Road now enables Kahala Posts Group’s (KPG) members to offer additional international trade tools and services to their customers. The agreement was signed with the International Post Corporation (IPC) Group acting on behalf of KPG, an alliance of 10 postal administrations around the world. Additionally, KPG chose Amber Road based on the strength of its two decades of experience in automating global trade; the depth and scope of the company’s global trade database; and the proven scalability of its solutions.
“Given the tremendous shipping volumes and global reach of KPG member organizations we are particularly proud to be affiliated with this project,” said John Preuninger, President of Amber Road. “It’s hard to imagine an organization with more dynamic global trade requirements than KPG. We look forward to bringing our deep global trade management experience, content and software to bear on this exciting initiative.”
By offering Amber Road’s GTM capabilities to its customers, KPG members implementing this solution will enable individual shippers, small businesses, medium-sized companies and large enterprises alike to:
- More effectively manage the complexities of cross-border trade
