After a long and very demanding period of preparation, ESA Logistics - part of the HTS Group - has achieved Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification in the Czech Republic, including certification type AEO-C. Hence, ESA Logistics is fully prepared for the introduction of the new Union Customs Code in the EU on 1 May 2016.
The AEO certificate, which is currently held by approximately 150 companies in the Czech Republic, is a mark of quality and reliability, not only of customs-related activities but also of a company’s administrative and financial situation in general. All applicants have to undergo thorough audits and cross-checks of their internal processes, customs administration procedures and long-term financial stability.
Goods which are imported, exported or transported by an AEO-certified company are given priority at customs, including being subject to quicker and/or less-frequent checks. This speeds up the customs clearance process and hence contributes to shorter delivery times.
Other advantages related to AEO certification include simplified customs procedures, online declaration of goods in approved locations and EU-recognized status. As a result, ESA Logistics can now perform customs declarations outside the Czech Republic, in all EU Member States, which will enhance the firm’s market position.
By obtaining this certificate, ESA Logistics has demonstrated its commitment to improving the safety and reliability of its international trade activities and to eliminating risks involved in importing and exporting goods to and from EU countries. This is aligned with the company’s ambitions to continue to further improve the quality of the services it provides and to be a market leader in the field of customs and logistics services. In view of the ongoing trend towards the digitalisation of customs procedures, securing AEO certification puts ESA Logistics in an even stronger position for the future.
