EFL granted AEO status
EFL International Distribution – the Irish agent of the U-Freight Group – has been awarded full authorised economic operator (AEO) status, following extensive audits from Irish Customs over the course of several months.
The AEO scheme is one of a series of measures being co-ordinated by the World Customs Organisation as part of a multi-layered approach to facilitating trade, whilst making supply chains more secure and controlled.
EFL International Distribution will see tangible benefits of AEO accreditation, including fewer physical and documentary examinations of cargo, priority use of non-intrusive inspection techniques when examination is required, priority processing by customs whenever security is heightened, and preferred trader eligibility.
Chris Radley, MD of EFL International Distribution says: “The accreditation covers full customs simplification – security and safety. The AEO scheme provides EFL with a quality mark proving that our internal controls, staff training, and procedures are effective and compliant.” (mw)
