AIT Worldwide Logistics' UK facilities earn priority customs clearance as Authorized Economic Operators

"With the potential of a hard Brexit, AIT's AEO status in the United Kingdom will be a particularly helpful differentiator for our customers, providing them simplified and efficient customs processing and priority import handling," he added. Available to financially stable, well-established businesses in the United Kingdom and European Union that are actively involved in customs operations and international trade, AEO accreditation is an internationally recognized mark of supply chain security and quality. According to Weigel, AEO approval requires an extensive vetting process to demonstrate well-documented internal standards and compliance.

Furthermore, AEO status lets customers know that their freight forwarder's customs control procedures not only meet government requirements but consistently attain a high standard for cargo safety and security. "We're excited for our customers to benefit from faster cycle times and enhanced reliability through our U.K. locations to all points in Europe and around the globe," Weigel said. "This achievement is a direct result of the U.K. team's commitment to living out AIT's core values, especially high performance." AIT's Amsterdam location earned AEO status in 2017.
