Southampton-based Meachers Global Logistics has gained Customs Simplification certification as an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) and is on track to meet the Security standard early in 2010. The HM Revenue and Custom
AEO is a voluntary compliance and security standard and is similar to the US Customs and Trade Partnership Against Terror introduced in the USA following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
AEO helps to enhance supply chain security by granting recognition to those audited organisations meeting the highest compliance standards in all aspects of their operations, and by encouraging continual best practice.
