ICC United Kingdom Corporate Digitalisation Taskforce | 2 July 2024

ICC United Kingdom Corporate Digitalisation Taskforce | 2 July 2024

ICC United Kingdom has been leading efforts across multiple stakeholders to support corporates with capturing the significant benefits associated with the digitalisation of trade.

Now the Electronic Trade Documents Act (ETDA) is in force, we turn our attentions to implementation and the “scaling up” of adoption.

The recent formation of the Corporate Digitalisation Taskforce is an opportunity for corporates to get involved, understand what this could mean for their organisation, and join others in the movement to digitalise supply chains.

The corporate taskforce was formed to promote best practice amongst the corporate community, share knowledge, gain access to support/guidance and catalyse adoption to help accelerate the timeframe to ‘tipping point’, when trade digitalisation becomes the norm.

Please note this taskforce is only open to corporates.
