In this Tradeshift blog, Tim McGrath discusses how openness of trade data is inevitable and that with UBL we can realize the equivalent benefits for information exchange that containerization brought to freight exchange. What is your opinion?Read More
European Business to government e-invoicing received 9 million Euro in funding from the Connecting Europe Facility. Even more grants are expected in 2015 or 2016 if the uptake of the envisaged technical platform for B2G e-invoicing is considered too low to ensure continuous usage and financial sustainability.Read More
