Shorter delivery periods
After all, one essential advantage of AEO-F certification entails more favourable customs risk assessment. This means reducing physical controls and preferred treatment in other security-related measures. This way, freight shipments are handled faster with reduced delivery periods and fewer delays for customers. The high requirements on internal and external security handling associated with AEO-F also ensure that fewer unclarified losses of goods – through theft, for example – are recorded. Furthermore, the Certificate is recognised bilaterally in many countries beyond EU borders. This harmonises collaboration with international business partners.
