Global trade and overseas sourcing strategies are impacted by a host of unpredictable factors like the state of the economy and financial markets, safety recalls and regulatory pressures
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2008
Committed to helping companies of all sizes do business across borders, Panjiva unveiled today Panjiva Blog, the company's new corporate blog that provides perspective on the latest developments in global sourcing and commentary on global issues impacting supply chain strategies for organizations.
The success of global sourcing efforts depends on a company's abilities to tackle a variety of challenges: selecting suppliers, overcoming language barriers, ensuring compliance with social and environmental standards, executing transactions, arranging delivery of goods and services, managing many classes of risk, and settling disputes. Panjiva provides the technology and services to help organizations optimize global sourcing strategies and identify which overseas suppliers to trust.
In addition to providing technology and services to address these challenges, the Panjiva Blog will also become a free resource for organizations to obtain information, ideas and best practices.
"Global trade and overseas sourcing strategies are impacted by a host of unpredictable factors like the state of the economy and financial markets, safety recalls and regulatory pressures," stated Josh Green, co-founder and CEO Panjiva. "Increasingly, companies want to work with top-notch suppliers and have complete transparency into their supply chains. And these companies are hungry for information on how any change in the current environment will impact their business. Our blog will create a forum for us to share our experience and insights, and for our community to offer commentary and observations. We look forward to this blog acting as an important step as we build a community dedicated to sharing ideas, best practices and observations."
Panjiva Blog will be hosted by Green, who began his career at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), where he provided strategic advice to Fortune 500 clients. Later at iFormation Group, a joint venture of BCG and Goldman Sachs, Green launched new, technology-enabled businesses. The idea for Panjiva came to Green while resolving challenges with underperforming suppliers as part of a small consumer electronics business with a supply chain that extended around the world.
