This paper analyses the role of inter-organization collaboration platforms in global trade. It argues that the interoperability among different inter-organization information exchange systems in global supply chains will be the key success factor to future supply chain efficiency. The establishment of an environment that fosters the development of a network of inter-organization collaboration and information exchange systems is a responsibility of policy makers. Finally a draft policy framework is proposed to provide an environment in which different inter-organization information exchange and collaboration platforms can develop networks and synergies.
