Exports in focus as Cargill becomes an Australian Trusted Trader
The big crop in eastern Australia is set to translate to a big year of exports of Australian grains and oilseed and refined oils.
In time for harvest, Cargill has been accredited as an Australian Trusted Trader by Australian Border Force and The Department of Home Affairs. This means Cargill will be able to clear Customs more easily and quickly, allowing our customers to receive goods in a timely manner.
Cargill exports grains and oilseed products from Australia to many countries within Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Pacific. Head of Trade Execution for Cargill in Australia, David Werner, said that as part of the Australian Trusted Trader program, Cargill receives a designated account manager and expects our exports to receive prioritisation when it comes to trade processing. Being an Australian Trusted Trader also means that our Buyers could benefit through Mutual Recognition Arrangements between Australian Border Force and customs agencies of our key trading partners such as New Zealand, South Korea, Singapore, Japan and Taiwan. This means, where possible, the goods will be given preferential treatment upon arrival at the destination.
“To become a Trusted Traded, a detailed audit was undertaken of our processes and systems as well as our crushing and refining facilities at Footscray and Newcastle,” David said.
“We welcome the Australian Trusted Trader program by the Federal Government to help exporters of Australian agriculture commodities,” he said.
