We develop detailed process maps of the whole trade environment (imports, exports, transit, and transshipment trades) using Visio and other tools.
Process mapping plays a number of roles in different projects and proves fundamental in activities such as change management, trade facilitation, implementation of new technologies and systems, impact assessment analysis, process improvements, automation and other such activities.
