Electronic Transport Records (ETR)

Current international trade relies heavily on international supply chains where companies split the production of goods and services among many countries to reduce overall costs. Recent studies reveal that the financial profile of the weakest link in the supply chain impacts the entire supply chain. This project will outline and test, through two or more pilot projects, new ways by which the practical financial needs of exporters and importers may be achieved and consequently fill the credit gap in international trade.

The focus of the inquiry will be on the emerging practice of creating integrated physical, financial and information supply chains. In the rapidly changing supply chain ecosystem, the role of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that drives a substantial portion of commercial activity in the developing world will be scrutinized in contextual detail. Such an examination is necessary because the varying commercial and financial profiles of these enterprises have an impact on the overall nature, robustness and sustainability of international supply chains.

The project investigates if there are strategic areas of opportunity and actions for the maritime and logistics industries to use electronic transport records to forge closer relationships with their customers as part of an evolving business relationship and play a greater role in securing international supply chains. This project will develop state of the art knowledge and skill to create a single and consistent system where finance and operations would collaborate allowing companies involved in international trade to lower the cost of goods, use capital more efficiently, and compete more effectively.
