Using Metrics/KPIs for Global Trade Management (GTM) and for Staff and Departmental Management

As in any business, importers and exporters need to focus constantly on improvement to compete in the marketplace. But how do you know if your import or export operations’ performance is improving, staying the same, or getting worse? Successful import and export companies use metrics or key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure salient aspects of their performance, whether in support of operations, compliance, or trade strategy.

KPIs act as practical and objective measurements of progress, either towards a pre-determined goal, or against a required standard of performance. At a minimum, importers should track the number of entries [by method of transport and by port], the percentage importations that are paperless, that have entry documents required (EDR), or via intensive examination, and the total entered value [by mode and port]. Exporters should track number of exports by country, method of transport, value of and number of automated export system (AES) entries, transit times, percentage of exports requiring a license, and export order processing times.

When effectively applied, import-export metrics/KPIs drive process efficiencies, provide better visibility, allow for objective staff management, and promote the efforts of the import-export department to the executive team and throughout the organization. Remember, what gets measured gets done!

This session by expert speaker Randi S. Waltuck Barnett will discuss the setting up of appropriate metrics/KPIs for any business function, which highlights success and opportunities, risks and accomplishments. Setting the right objective measurements for personnel and systems points to possible gaps that can lead to inadvertent material errors and penalties; pro-actively identifying lessons learned allows for continuous business improvement, kaizen; and setting objective KPIs highlights to cost avoidance and tangible savings that can be gained through best import-export management practices.
