    AEOF CERTIFICATION

    A new prestigious goal reached by Trans World Shipping SpA:

    Trans World Shipping Spa (TWS) has been granted AEOF certification, i.e. the status of Authorized Economic Operator – Full (certification nr. IT AEOF 15 1042).
    AEOF status is issued by Customs Authorities to any business that fulfils strict criteria in terms of good tax and customs compliance history, financial solvency, accurate record-keeping, safety and security of operating procedures and infrastructures following a long audit process.
    The certification procedure was drawn up by the European Union following the directives of the World Customs Organization (WCO). The WCO guidelines have been adopted by several other Countries in the world with the consequent mutual recognition of the certifications issued by the Customs Authorities of the following States: THE PEOPLES’ REPUBLIC OF CHINA (PRC)
    JAPAN
    NORWAY
    SWITZERLAND
    UNITED STATES (CTPAT)
    Such mutual recognition between different Countries enables operators sharing the same characteristics, both financial and operational, to ensure companies at both ends of the International supply chain (i.e. consignors and  consignees) higher safety against tampering of the goods in transit and simplified operational and customs procedures as well as avoid bureaucratic hindrances.   Resorting to an AEOF certified customs agent offers several advantages, the main of which being: ·         simplification of procedures and consequent reduction of customs controls, ·         facilitation of safety procedures, ·         support in obtaining customs authorizations such as the management of bonded warehouses, temporary bonded warehouses, etc.  
    Moreover, in the event of controls, further advantages offered are:
    ·         priority treatment of consignments, ·         choice of the place of controls, subject to agreement with the customs authorities.   By deciding to apply for AEOF certification, which is not mandatory, we at TWS wanted to take a further step in the direction of quality and service reliability so as to ensure greater peace of mind for our customers.

    TWS is at the forefront, also, of seismic safety

      Safety in workplaces has always been one of the pillars of the TWS culture. More in detail, as the Marches is a region of high earthquake hazard, we at TWS have always scrupulously obeyed seismic safety regulations. Today we can say that we are at the forefront also in this field. We have, in fact, increased the level of safety of many of our branches, even going beyond the provisions of the relevant legislation. Thanks to the partnership with AF Foresi Engineering Srl, we have decided on our own accord to make  our warehouses and offices compliant with the most advanced and strict regulations. In doing so, we are adopting an innovative device: the BF seismic hook for infill panels, which overcomes the drawbacks of the solutions traditionally used in earthquake engineering. 
    If a seismic event occurs, the BF seismic hook enables the prefabricated structures to slide considerably without deformations;
     the seismic energy absorbed by the building is, in fact, dissipated by a highly ductile structural steel profile which has exceptional performances also in the event of small  assembly errors.   The BF seismic hook, which is currently being patented, is the result of the scientific collaboration of AF Foresi Engineering Srl and Dr. Eng. Innocenzo Becci with Prof. Eng. Paolo Riva from the University of Bergamo -  Department of Design and Technologies, and the active cooperation of TWS. Its adoption enables TWS to fully comply with the Italian Technical Regulations on Construction (NTC), which were passed in 2008 and replaced the Ministerial Decrees in the field of seismic safety of 9th and 16th January 1996. The testing of this innovative device has been carried out in compliance with the guidelines for the revision of NTC 2008, currently known as NTC 2015.

    Raffaele Marciello was rewarded with pole position at Silverstone .

    Raffaele Marciello is beginning to reap the benefits of his hard work over the last months: the racing driver from the Ferrari Driver Academy obtained the second place behind Rio Haryanto in the sprint race 2 at Silverstone on 5th July. After an excellent start in third position, Marciello aimed straight for the podium, which he deservedly reached. His familiarity with the track, together with the experience gained with the tires, was decisive. Raffaele is currently sixth in the overall standings with 44 points. We at TWS are extremely pleased to support Lello in his success and we fully agree with his comment: “These achievements are nothing more than the result of the commitment we put in what we do day by day”.

    TWS supports a young promising motorcycle racer:

    Riccardo Rossi

    “I founded SIC58 Squadra Corse, the motorcycle racing team dedicated to Marco, to help children who otherwise would never have the opportunity to race”. These are the words of Paolo Simoncelli, who decided to create a two wheel racing team in memory of his son Marco, who everybody called Sic. We at TWS share Paolo Simoncelli’s wish and do so by supporting Riccardo Rossi, a motorcycle racer from SIC58. Born in Genoa in 2002, Riccardo ran his first race and motorcycle test in the Adriatic Trophy of 30th October 2011 coming in at first place. In 2012 he came fifth in the Italian Speed Championship and first in the European Championship in Zuera. In 2015 he started racing for SIC58 Squadra Corse, for which he is taking part in the 2015 Championship also thanks to the support of TWS. In the 125 2T championship standings of April 2015 Riccardo is seventh with 19 points. By supporting Riccardo, we at TWS want to keep alive the memory of a motorcycle racer who is in all of our hearts and make sure that, in his name, Italian motorcycling can go on establishing itself worldwide.
