Trade Programs

Are you a Trusted Trader in the Eyes of Your Customs Administration?


Are you considering applying to become an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) such as a member of C-TPAT and/or PIP?

Have you been advised that you are due for re-validation for your Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) and/or Partners in Protection (PIP) Program?

Are you struggling to decide if becoming an AEO makes business sense for your organization?


Popular Trusted Trader initiatives, such as Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) programs, can provide many advantages to their members. Expedited customs release, minimized scrutiny regarding supply chain security, and the overall benefits of mutual recognition could all make pursuing membership an important step for your business. However, with over 65 countries running AEO programs and many more slated to begin operations, establishing which memberships are right for you and at what level you should participate, can be a challenge.

From determining which organization best suits your needs, to facilitating the actual application process, we will be with you every step of the way. As your resource, we perform onsite validations, design process mapping, and handle post-implementation audits and re-certifications. We are here to protect your brand and help you build relationships with the organizations that will simplify your trading process and allow your business to prosper.
