International Trade

Due to increasing globalization along the supply chain, a large number of departments in the company are involved in foreign trade processes. Changing, complex legal requirements, e.g. in the area of customs and embargo checks, pose additional challenges for companies: Incorrect implementation of the applicable regulations can result in anything from delivery delays to penalties.

Due to these requirements, SAP has provided the modules "SD-FT (Sales and Distribution - Foreign Trade)" and "MM-FT (Material Management - Foreign Trade)" in SAP R/3 for foreign trade. However, these modules will not be available in the same function in SAP S/4HANA and "SAP S/4HANA International Trade" will be delivered as part of the "Digital Core". This therefore means changes in foreign trade and this must be taken into account accordingly when migrating to S/4HANA. 4process AG will be happy to support you here.

In addition to the solutions FT in R/3 and International Trade in S/4HANA, the additional solution SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS) can be implemented for complex processes in foreign trade.
