Australian Border Force Superintendent and Assistant Secretary Visit McPherson’s

Superintendent, Martin Moseley and Assistant Secretary, Brett Cox of the Australian Border Force, attended McPherson’s Kingsgrove warehouse in December 2021 to further understand our facility operations and processes as part of the Australian Trusted Trader (ATT) programme. Accompanied by McPherson’s Supply Chain Director, Mark Brady our two VIP guests were very impressed with our capability.

Martin Moseley is responsible for all operational elements of the Australian Trusted Trader (ATT) Programme, an Authorised Economic Operator program aligned with the World Customs Organization standards. ATT operates within the Safe Framework of Standards to secure and facilitate Global Trade.

McPhersons receives many containers from many countries including China, Pakistan, India and Thailand and these containers flow through our city ports and customs checks. The programme aims to reduce red tape for Trusted Traders at the border, improving certainty in our export markets, and expediting the flow of cargo in and out of Australia, which means faster access to market.

McPherson’s went through a rigorous process to pass the ATT accreditation, including an assessment of our supply chain security and trade compliance practices to ensure they meet The Customs (Australian Trusted Trader Programme) Rule 2015. In addition, a personal visit to our facilities was completed to review operations and meet employees, so we can work together to identify opportunities that may improve our supply chain security.

It has been 5 years since McPherson's first accreditation, so our reaccreditation has been scheduled for later this month. This will mainly be focused on our processes within the Kingsgrove Warehouse and supporting divisions.

McPherson’s would like to thank Superintendent, Martin Moseley and Assistant Secretary, Brett Cox for visiting our Kingsgrove warehouse and we would like to say well done to the McPherson’s Supply Chain Division and all the warehouse employees who contribute to our ATT accreditation.
