GTS = Global Trade Services

Global Trade Services helps the company in foreign trade, to comply the often changing international regulations. Customs clearance and the foreign trade processes are efficiently supported by GTS. SAP GTS works fine with the modules SD, MM and GTM and all their subsequent documents within SAP ERP. But SAP GTS can also used with Non-SAP-systems. The causing documents within ERP can be blocked by GTS until all checks within GTS were positive or released manually. For doing the tests the necessary master data and also document data are exchanged between ERP and GTS. In SAP ERP there was already a foreign trade handling in SD and MM, but this was more for reporting of Intrastat and Extrastat. This will not enhanced anymore by SAP, because they focus now on SAP GTS.

The GTS consist four main components:
