AEB (International) Ltd, one of Europe’s leading providers of global trade and supply chain management solutions, is inviting supply chain professionals to a conference in Leamington next month entitled “Supply chain risks and compliance: Does AEO give you an edge?”.
Organised in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, CILT(UK), the event takes place on Thursday, April 3, at the Mallory Court Hotel in Leamington.
Managing supply chain risk remains a complex topic, which - if taken seriously - impacts the supply chain in its entirety. The introduction of the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) in 2007 by the WCO (World Customs Organisation) focused on securing the supply chain, and on being able to demonstrate such security to customs authorities and business partners. Companies holding AEO status were to benefit from faster movement of goods across borders, and from mutually recognised programmes such as the C-TPAT from the US.
