This EU wide accreditation will prove increasingly beneficial to Meachers Global Logistics and its customers as regulations tighten, not only at EU level, but internationally.
The company will be hosting an educational seminar entitled AEO - What It Means To You on Tuesday 12 April at the Chilworth Manor Hotel.
AEO is a voluntary compliance and security standard and is similar to the US Customs and Trade Partnership Against Terror (CT-PAT) that was introduced in the USA following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Similar standards are being introduced across the world and include such countries as Canada, China and India and many more. Stuart Terris, deputy md says: "We believe customers may not fully understand the importance of AEO or the impact it is likely to have on their businesses.We anticipate that increasingly tenders are likely to stipulate AEO as a requirement and that it is likely to become an industry standard. Our AEO seminar will provide customers that import and export outside the EU with a practical understanding of how AEO works."
