About the book

At every port and border international freight operations are exposed to trade and customs procedures. With considerable turmoil in international trade and logistics and recent changes to legislation, standards and trade agreements, it is more important than ever to understand trade and customs issues and their impact on logistics operations.

Cross-Border Logistics Operations is a comprehensive guide to the cross-border trade and customs environment and its implications for international business supply chains. Written to the World Customs Organization (WCO) Professional Standards (also known as the PICARD Standards), it covers all the operational and legal aspects of cross-border logistics operations as well as trade facilitation and frictionless trade.

This book is the essential guide to meeting the demands of globalization by applying new management techniques and technologies. Bringing together the political, administrative, technological and economic drivers of cross-border trade, the book includes contributions from the World Trade Organization (WTO), the UN's International Trade Centre and the World Bank. Cross-Border Logistics Operations includes illustrative case studies, examples and extracts from relevant regulations and international recommendations.
