Would you be so kind and answer a question that has been raised by our directors? We are validated as a "Known Shipper" with the Department for Transport. Our freight agents have applied for and received AEO status. Our Directors are questioning why the company should apply for AEO status if we have already been approved as a "Known Shipper" and our agents have AEO status. What is your feeling? Should we apply for AEO status and what are the benefits over "Known Shipper" validation?
