Book your place

This seminar is aimed at businesses that are either thinking about applying for AEO or have just started the application process. This practical session will run through the AEO framework with hands on advice and support on how to benefit from AEO.

For traders currently examining their options to determine if AEO trusted trader status is the right fit for their business or if alternative Customs reliefs such as Customs warehousing or inward processing, or even supply chain modification may be more appropriate.
