A new prestigious goal reached by Trans World Shipping SpA:
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)
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.
