The Authorised Economic Operator Scheme (AEO) scheme is intended to bring about improved security and compliance in the supply chain, whether you are a Forwarder, Customs clearance agency, exporter or importer. With WTA working with many International Companies with significant Supply Chains we wanted to ensure that we regained our AEO Accreditation especially with Brexit around the corner.
With it being very likely that Britain will leave the EU Single Market and the EU Customs Union any product being imported or exported from the 27 EU countries would be considered international. By not having the AEO quality mark it could impact many of our clients, who rely on us to provide a seamless service that sees their Supply Chain running as efficiently as possible.
By WTA being AEO accredited, it means that as part of the process we had our entire supply chain closely scrutinized and that we have best practices in place for a compliant, secure and transparent supply chain. Giving you the peace of mind that we are an organization that is committed to delivering a streamlined operation that is beneficial to you.
