Standards Toolkit for Cross-border Paperless Trade:
Accelerating Trade Digitalisation Through the Use of Standards

Trading across borders is a notoriously complex process and highly dependent on paper documents, with fewer than 1 per cent of trade documents fully digitized. The lack of adoption of current data standards combined with the need for new ones significantly hinder the seamless data flow from one end of the supply chain to the other. This toolkit provides the most notable and widely used standards in trade digitalization for unlocking the benefits of cross-border paperless trade.
