You have service agreements with your customers which include critical SLAs. In most cases, meeting those SLAs means storing spare parts near your install base – globally. It’s the exportation and re-importation of spares where most companies struggle. Moving your spares across international borders can be risky business. One misstep in product classification, valuation, licensing, paperwork or any number of country-specific regulations and your shipment gets buried in customs purgatory in some faraway land for weeks or even months. Meanwhile, your customers get edgy as they wait for the spare parts they need. Understandably so. Downtime is a killer of revenue and your company’s reputation. The price of noncompliance most certainly will hit a lot closer to home, too, in the form of hefty fines, a possible ban from shipping anything anywhere, or worse — are you ready to trade your corner office for a prison cell? It could happen to you and your company, but it doesn’t have to. You need an FCPA compliant partner who understands the stakes and the challenges you face. You need Flash Global. We handle every aspect of global trade compliance on your behalf when proper authorizations are provided.
