RESEARCH: Global Trade Management Agenda 2015

This year's 'Global Trade Management Agenda' focuses on the burning issues of the day: In addition to the top priorities in global trade management (GTM) in 2015, these include the importance of preferential agreements and the business community’s assessment of the planned Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and US. The Global Trade Management Agenda 2015 is based on the results of an online survey of logistics and global trade experts conducted in the summer of 2014. The study is a collaborative project of AEB and Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg, DHBW) in Stuttgart.
