SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is pleased to announce a new partnership with India’s Global Trade Plaza (GTP).
Utilizing its ValiTrade program, SGS will provide the online trading platform with comprehensive risk mitigation services encompassing customized and pre-defined on- and off-site verification of trade partners and products. This will enhance transparency on GTP’s reputable B2B platform and allow them to offer trading parties exceptional risk management, fraud detection and quality controls for their online transactions.
ValiTrade delivers transparency along the complete supply chain. By utilizing ValiTrade, GTP is further strengthening its extensive international trading network of trusted suppliers and buyers by providing complete visibility and real-time reporting that enhances credibility in all transactions.
Mr. Sunil Yeole, Director – Trade Facilitation Services, Connectivity & Products Division, SGS in India said: “We are very happy to be collaborating with Global Trade Plaza. The biggest challenges facing online platforms are transaction security and trade partner authentication.

Mr. Pulkit Dwivedi, Co-founder of Global Trade Plaza, said, “This strategic alliance will help Global Trade Plaza to move forward towards more secure transactions. We began Global Trade Plaza with the aim of simplifying international business by streamlining the complicated compliance requirements associated with imports and exports. Merchants are freed to worry less about the paperwork and focus more on selling quality goods.
“The Global Trade Plaza platform already offers smartly designed features that help drive trader prosperity within a healthy trading environment. By collaborating with SGS, we are moving a significant step closer towards our goal of delivering a safe deal for all customers.”
