Security Services in the Supply Chain
The international standards, including those of the World Customs Organization (WCO), allow Customs authorities and their partners to improve the security of the world’s Supply Chain, at the same time as facilitating the movement of goods.
The growing concern at the international level for supply chain security, in view of the threat posed by the potential terrorist acts, transnational organised crime, and the smuggling, has considerably increased the need to safeguard the efficient movement of goods, protect transport methods and Customs fees. This concern for security must not, of course, destabilise world trade. Legitimate cargoes should be able to continue to enjoy all the advantages of Trade Facilitation.
The need to reconcile the security imperative for the supply chain and with trade facilitation, has led the World Customs Organisation to develop a framework of standards to secure and facilitate global trade.
PHOENIX Trade Facilitation & Security will work with you to implement standards to regulate security and facilitate global trade (SAFE and AEO standards – Authorised Economic Operators and mutual recognition systems).
