Exertis gains AEO accreditation
Distributor of technology products Exertis has been awarded Authorised Economic Operator status for customs activities by HM Revenue & Customs, joining a group of around 700 UK businesses holding accreditation.
The standard will become more important when (or indeed, if) the UK leaves the EU as the government has confirmed that AEO will remain after Brexit.
AEO is an internationally recognised quality mark which shows that the role of organisations in the international supply chain is secure and customs controls and procedures are efficient and meet EU standards.
Richard Hinds, chief operating officer, Exertis UK & Ireland, said: “As a ‘trusted trader’ we will have quicker access to numerous simplified customs procedures and authorisations and, in some cases, the right to fast-track our shipments through customs.”
