We are about to start an OpenERP implementation project. So far, i could not find any modules or apps for supporting the trade business. The import / export of merchandises are long term processes that require many documents and controls and are "nice" candidates to be managed by an workflow engine. Does anybody know if are there modules/apps for the trading (import / export) business?

You should never search modules by industry but by feature. Saying that you are looking for modules for the trading industry doesn't tell us anything about the feature you are looking for. Whether you want to manage the time sheets of your employees or the location of the goods you import are completely different features that are necessary in the trade industry and would end up in completely different answers to your question. Please specify.

OK Fabrice, thanks ... I'll try to be more specific. I would like to know if there are modules or functions to support the import/export processes, that for instance: to collect one or more foreign provider's orders (or invoices) and launch an workflow that: allows for requesting/attaching delivery services (customs, transportation, etc.); controls the need for issuing legal documents; controls delivery times, etc. Thanks!
