We have an expertise in preparing companies for the application to become an AEO and we represent companies in the application proceeding at the local customs authorities all over Europe.

We help you in all question of export control. In times of internationalisation of markets it is more than important to watch the relevant regulation on export control, as the Customs and Excise Manangemant Act, the Export of Good Control Order and other relevant acts and orders related to foreign trade.
