ECL awarded Authorised Economic Operator (AEO-F)

As of December 10th 2009 EKB Container Logistik GmbH & Co. KG (ECL) has been awarded with the prestigious Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status by the Customs Authority Bremen.

The overall aim of the AEO programme is to provide security for the international supply
chain starting from the manufacturer of goods and finishing with delivery to the end-user.

ECL was granted the highest AEO Certification category: Customs simplifications / Security
and safety - AEO F, which can described as the seal of approval of the World Customs Organisation (WCO), and it is recognized throughout the European Union.

Obtaining this certification means enjoying various privileges in connection with customclearance procedures like for example the simplification of otherwise complex customs regulations.

In return of these privileges ECL had to prove that its operation comply with stringent security,
reliability, solvency and legal-compliance requirements.

Furthermore, participating companies must have a transparent organisation of their customs processes and appropriate security procedures against unauthorised access to goods or data.

Contracts are only awarded to business-partners and subcontractors who have either themselves obtained AEO certification, or who have given a written assurance that their professional services comply with AEO safety criteria.

ECL now is able to provide even quicker handling services combined with fast-tracking
throughout German Customs Authorities – esp. NCTS-Procedures using the ATLAS-System.
Companies with an AEO certificate will be recognized world wide as safe, secure and compliant business partners.
