On November 8, Daniel Earnst, as part of the Global Solutions group for Integration Point, gave an interview on “The State of Global Trade in the Automotive Industry.” Daniel’s interview covered the effects of the ever-changing regulations landscape on the automotive industry.

In the interview, Daniel detailed the many possible impacts of Section 301 and other retaliatory tariffs on the automotive supply chain. He also considered how the implementation of USMCA and movement away from NAFTA will change the automotive industry. Finally, he highlighted the benefits of using Global Trade Management (GTM) software, such as Integration Point, to mitigate the harmful impacts of tariff changes.

Integration Point offers several solutions amid the climate of logistic uncertainty. For automotive companies, use of a Global Trade Visibility (GTV) solution, Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) Management solution, or Drawback Management software could be especially effective. The Integration Point GTV solution offers a consolidated, unified view of your trade activity across trade lanes. Our FTZ Management solution offers a way to benefit from inverted tariffs through this U.S. duty deferral program. Our Drawback Management software enables the user to easily access and view all the information needed for drawback filings across multiple countries.

Daniel has been working at Integration Point in Global Solutions for five years. He works with Integration Point clients on each major continent and specializes in constructing solutions for automotive companies.
