Accredited Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)

Unsworth Global Logistics are proud to be one of the first companies to be awarded the AEO Full Accreditation (‘Customs simplification’ and ‘safety and security’) by HM Revenue & Customs in 2010.

This coveted status is an internationally recognised quality mark certifying that our role in the International Supply Chain is secure, and that our customs controls and procedures are highly efficient, accurate and fully compliant through a rigorous auditing process. It also demonstrates our reliability and our quality management systems, training and ongoing solvency.

Our AEO status means your cargo is securely handled, meeting the highest government security and safety standards. AEO status also results in speedier handling of cargo through customs.

Being an AEO operator recognises that our operations are safe, secure and trustworthy.

Benefits of holding the full Accredited Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status includes:

  • Consignments fast-tracked through Customs controls and priority treatment at the frontier
  • Reduced scope and frequency of customs inspections
  • Easy access to customs simplified procedures and reduced data requirements
  • Priority over non-AEO’s for cargo selected for examination
  • Mutual recognition status across the EU, USA, Japan

In fact this means that your shipments will be treated with priority by the Customs Authorities within the EU, meaning less physical and administrative inspections compared to non-certified companies. This will lead to a smoother and faster logistics handling and less administration and finally a safer supply chain.

Further information regarding the importance of AEO status can be found here or by emailing Unsworth at enquiries@uglog.com.
