The benefits of working with a AEO approved logistics provider

We have passed rigorous checks to prove we are a trusted and reliable trading partner

Your consignments are safe and secure when shipping with us

Our customs & supply chain procedures meet strict safety and security standards.

Your consignments get preferential service at borders meaning improved transit times and fewer delays.

Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) is a significant customs and international supply chain security accreditation that is recognised in the UK, across the EU and internationally.

As an AEO accredited business, we have been judged to meet strict criteria when it comes to customs controls and our supply chain security procedures.

We will only work with customs partners who can deliver the service and reliability that we need. To ensure this we carefully build relationships with them over time so that we can rely on them and you can rely on us.

Your goods are safe, all over in the world

AEO is recognised and respected worldwide through a series of Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) with other customs authorities.

The UK has these with:

  • The EU
  • Japan
  • China
  • the USA
  • Switzerland
  • New Zealand
