According to the Trade Management Software market report, one of the major drivers for this market is need for efficient supply chain. The need for global supply chain visibility and optimisation has increased among trading companies because of the growing cost of global shipments, extended delivery time, and the variations in lead time. The visibility into the global supply chain is necessary as it helps to avoid overstocking of inventory, optimise supply chain network, and mitigate trade compliance risks. However, the use of manual or outdated technologies and the complexity of the global trading systems, which have different data and message formats, are obscuring the visibility into the networks of the supply chain.
