On October 31st, 2014, EntryPoint sold its business of providing implementation and management of SAP Global Trade Services software to KPMG LLP and no longer offers such services.

Inquiries in respect of such services can be addressed to KPMG LLP via Doug Zuvich, Global Lead Partner, Trade and Customs Services, at dzuvich@kpmg.com, Andrew Siciliano, U.S. Lead Partner, Trade and Customs Services, at asiciliano@kmpg.com, or Robert Waldrop, Managing Director and SAP GTS service leader atrwaldrop@kpmg.com.

GTS Team

The GTS Team consists of industry-trained GTS consultants with multiple GTS deployments, and trade compliance specialists supporting clients' trade operations.

  • Practice includes customs brokers and trade compliance officers, legal experts, along with former forwarding agents, government liaisons, trade compliance managers and logistics specialists.

  • Unlike all competitors in this area, our GTS consultants are required to have both technical skills and extensive knowledge of compliance.

  • Practice consultants have significant experience with SAP ERP, especially in those areas that impact GTS.

  • All projects are conducted in frequent collaboration with the entire global trade team, so all of our clients benefit equally from our collective experience, best practices and methodology.
