Authorized Economic Operator certification
AEO, or "Authorized Economic Operator", is a voluntary certification awarded by Customs.
This is a European program, existing in the 27 member states, ensuring the safety and security of transported goods.
In 2009, we were awarded the status of Type 3 Authorized Economic Operator, in "Customs simplification and safety/security".
Thanks to this AEO certification, we enjoy simplified customs formalities, a reduction in physical and document checks, priority handling when selected for an inspection, and the option of choosing the location of the inspection.
Being an Authorized Economic Operator is also evidence of our professionalism as, in order to obtain this certification, the service providers used must comply with the requirements of the AEO standard.
