Global eTrade Services (GeTS) announced the partnership with the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) to onboard their members on hive (highly interconnected & vibrant e-trade), joining a vibrant and connected global association-centric community of more than 10,000 freight forwarders spanning across Asia to Latin America and now North America.
hive is a cross-border trade facilitation platform connecting multiple stakeholders from customs agencies, freight forwarders, shippers, carriers and brokers on a collaborative single window to strengthen trade and compliance between countries.
With the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) in place, businesses in Canada can enjoy preferential access to markets in Singapore, Asia Pacific and Latin
America, allowing easier flow of traded goods between these countries. Members can leverage hive to gain competitive advantage, establish credible partnerships through hive’s Partner Discovery Service and request for quotation for services not limited to geographies. Their cross-border trade compliance needs can be fulfilled through 26 customs nodes connecting more than 175,000 parties globally. Additionally, hive is part of CALISTATM — a digital supply chain platform powered by GeTS,
enabling members to orchestrate their supply chain activities from physical logistics, compliance through to financial requirements on a single platform.
