Metal Terminals International (MTI) is now one of 115 Port of Antwerp companies with Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification.
Established by the European Union in January 2008, the AEO programme is a trade facilitation measure. To gain AEO certification, operators must meet high standards for financial solvency, administration, record-keeping and security management. Certification is based on extensive audits by member state customs authorities and results in simplified customs procedures.
MTI is also licensed by the London Metal Exchange as part of its global network of storage facilities where approved brands can be held on behalf of warrant holders. Its 100 hectare facility is located on Antwerp's Left Bank Port.
