Australian Customs Selects Expert Partners, KGH Border Services and CT-Strategies, in Building New Trusted Trader Programme

The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) is preparing to launch a new 12-month Trusted Trader Programme pilot on July 1st, 2015. The pilot will initially include a limited number of exporters representing a cross-section of industry, but importers and all other components of the supply chain will be included in later stages of the pilot. Pilot participants will have to meet international supply-chain security and trade compliance standards and in return, will receive a number of benefits like enhanced client service through the provision of a dedicated Client Service Manager, fewer examinations and priority consideration of applications for advance rulings, duty drawbacks and tariff advice reviews.

To do so, ACBPS has enlisted the help of KGH Border Services, a firm based in Sweden that has a great deal of experience setting up Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) programmes in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere. KGH has chosen CT-Strategies as a partner, given our wealth of experience in growing the premier United States’ Trusted Trader Program to over 10,500 members.
