DHL Global Forwarding obtains full accreditation under the Australian Trusted Trader Program
Melbourne, 28 September 2017: DHL Global Forwarding (Australia) Pty Limited (DHL) has been granted full accreditation by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) under the Australian Trusted Trader Program, with the signing of a formal agreement on September 5th, 2017.
DHL has been involved with the government program since the initial pilot commenced in 2015 and is the largest service provider to be granted entry into the scheme.
Australian Trusted Trader is a voluntary trade facilitation initiative. It recognizes businesses with a secure supply chain and compliant trade practices, rewarding accredited businesses with a range of trade facilitation benefits. Australian Trusted Trader further supports and facilitates the handling of clients' international supply chains by service providers.
Within Australia’s Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) programme, Trusted Traders work to secure the international supply chain, while facilitating the movement of legitimate trade. Australia is the only AEO programme to grant accreditation to service providers as the Australian Government recognizes the important role played by these companies.
Commenting on the accreditation, Chief Superintendent Sneha Chatterjee of the Australian Border Force said: “The Australian Border Force is pleased to welcome globally recognized service providers like DHL Global Forwarding to the Australian Trusted Trader program.
“Trusted Traders receive a range of benefits, one of which is a seat at the table with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. This is a forum to discuss issues and initiatives that directly affect trade communities, and provides an opportunity to shape the future direction of policy and programmes.”
Tony Boll, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding South Pacific added: “This accreditation is recognition of the commitment DHL has made to supply chain security, high compliance standards and display of best industry practices as set by the DIBP.”
“Government-led programs such as this are incredibly important for our industry and we are proud to be awarded Trusted Trader status.”
