We are delighted to announce that ParcelPlanet has attained AEO status, an accreditation that will greatly benefit our clients post-Brexit.
What is Authorised Economic Operator Status (AEO)?
Very simply, AEO certification demonstrates that your role within the international supply chain is secure and that your customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.
AEO is a globally recognised status that is becoming more and more important to clients, particularly in the US and China and will become even more desirable internationally post-Brexit as companies seek ways to keep their cargo moving fast and to keep delivery times down.
What are the benefits of AEO status to ParcelPlanet customers?
We are very proud of our AEO accreditation and all of the team here at ParcelPlanet have worked hard to achieve it. Companies holding AEO certification have a clear advantage when exporting, especially to the world’s largest economies, the United States and the UK post-Brexit.
Authorised economic operator (AEO) certification helps to minimise customs delays and ensure fast, steady delivery in and out of Britain. Businesses with AEO status will receive priority clearance at physical customs checks over those that don’t and when time is of the essence, such delays in delivery could prove ever more costly.
The commercial benefits are immense and include:
- greater access to priority clearance
- reduced administration
- reductions or waivers of deferment and comprehensive guarantees
- increased transport security
- fewer delays in despatch
- improved security between supply chain partners
- quicker access to other customs authorisations
