Authorized Economic Operator (AEO)

Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) is the European Union’s response to the need to secure the international supply chain. This program is similar to the Customs-Trade Partnership against Terrorism (CTPAT) program in the United States. Eventually these programs expect to achieve mutual recognition with each other.

The following "K" Line companies in Europe are certified under AEO:

  1. "K" Line (Belgium) NV
  2. "K" Line (Deutschland) GmbH
  3. "K" Line (Europe) Ltd. (Certified in the United Kingdom)
