(NYSE: CNW) has recently completed the certification process for its Rotterdam facility and can now confirm that all four of its operating sites in the Netherlands are certified as "Regulated Agent" Airfreight.
The audit was carried out by Dutch government agency, the Royal Marechaussee, and means that Menlo's establishments at Amsterdam, Eersel, Maastricht and Rotterdam are registered on the European Union database.
The certificate, which is valid for five years, allows Menlo facilities a waiver from all additional physical security inspections of airfreight shipments as well as any additional contextual inspections of airfreight documentation. These advantages will in turn deliver lower administration costs for customers and avoid potential delays in processing airfreight shipments.In welcoming the announcement, Tony Gunn, Menlo's MD in Europe, said, "The certification process and audit have been achieved through dedicated teamwork. Specific subject matter expertise and a commitment to excellence have been required in order to meet the operational conditions and security requirements of the legislation.
