Authorized Economic Operator
Freightways operates under the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) status, which is the European Union’s response to the need to secure the international supply chains. It is the European equivalent of the US’ Customs-Trade Partnership against Terrorism (C-TPAT) and the World Customs Organization (WCO). An AEO-certified logistic service provider received a low security risk rating that offers benefits to their clients such as:
– Fast Lane for shipments (AEO logistics service provider will be given priority)
– Simplified Customs declarations
– Fewer physical Customs inspections
– AEO as a Global Quality mark or the international supply chain
AEO is a Government audit of our financial well-being and Customs compliance. This guarantees that Freightways’ clients, both domestic and overseas, have a secure, safe and dependable component in their supply chain.
