AEO status recognises Asendia as a trusted operator globally


This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: AEO status recognises Asendia as a trusted operator globally.

Asendia UK, the global logistics provider, has been elevated full Authorised Economic Operator accreditation covering both Customs, and Safety and Security. The internationally recognised quality mark came into effect for Asendia on 7 November 2022.

AEOF accreditation provides Asendia UK clients with confidence that the business is working with best-in-class customs procedures and practices, including the benefits of accelerated supply chains. AEO status recognises Asendia as a trusted operator globally, including all EU member states and the UK.

AEO accreditation enhances international supply chain security allowing for quicker customs procedures, the ability to move goods and is recognised with all trading partners that adopt the WCO SAFE Framework of Standards.

The status is not easy to attain. Asendia UK has met strict criteria including compliance with customs legislation, taxation rules, and security and safety measures in order to have achieved the AEO status. Although AEO accreditation is not mandatory as part of the SAFE framework, certification symbolises a high-quality standard among competitive logistics partners ensuring Asendia continues to surpass client expectations.

Asendia UK we continually review and test our operations against AEO standards in order to maintain and protect supply chain security.

Commenting on the achievement Luis Barros, Chief Operations Officer at Asendia UK said: “There are so many advantages of AEOF accreditation, not least the assurance it gives our clients that we operate to best practice protocols for customs compliance.  The e-commerce community is eager to return to business-as-usual post-Brexit and we are in the best position to make that possible for them with this official status locked down.”
