The United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) selects Amber Road (NYSE: AMBR), a leading provider of global trade management solutions (GTM), as its Innovation Partner for 2015, the first partner of this kind. Amber Road’s GTM solutions automate import and export processes to enable goods to flow across international borders in the most efficient, compliant and profitable way.
“Amber Road is an innovator not only in terms of their offerings, but also in terms of bringing exciting content and ideas to our members, so they were the natural choice to help us develop this new partnership program,” says Julia K. Hughes, President of the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA).
Amber Road has been a member of the association since 2013 and has contributed its expertise at several USFIA industry events and webinars on topics including conflict minerals, supplier risk management, and the costs of non-compliance. This year, Amber Road will serve as a key subject matter expert on utilizing innovative sourcing technologies to ensure compliance across the global supply chain.
