1930As early as in the 1930s, Militzer & Münch became the freight agent of major ocean carriers and airlines. In 1949, Militzer & Münch was appointed official IATA agent.

AEO - authorized economic operator
AEO status is an internationally recognized quality mark, indicating that an operator's role in the international supply chain is secure, and that its customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant. AEO status isn’t mandatory, but it gives quicker access to certain simplified customs procedures and in some cases the right to ‘fast-track’ some shipments through some customs and safety and security procedures.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association for the world’s airlines, representing over 260 airlines or 83% of total air traffic.
