Vos Helmond AEO certified

Vos Logistics Helmond, one of the group’s public/shared warehouses, has been officially certified as an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). The Dutch Customs authority presented the company with a combined Customs simplification and security and safety certificate. It has thus recognised Vos Logistics Helmond as a “secure, safe and reliable international logistics partner”. Vos Logistics Helmond is a specialist in Contract Logistics and International Freight Forwarding.

The logistics centre in Roosendaal (currently under construction) will be the next location to seek AEO certification. The location will come into operation in November this year. With its AEO certificate, Vos Logistics Helmond can respond faster and better to international trade, in which Customs procedures play a critical role.

Growing international concern for security and safety is leading to stricter rules on the import and export of goods in the logistics chain. The Helmond facility has made substantial investments in these areas. AEO status for Customs simplification and security and safety offers benefits to international traders. With fewer physical and administrative checks, Customs procedures can be completed more quickly, resulting in more efficient and simpler administrative procedures and a better service to customers. The AEO certificate is recognised by all member states of the European Union.
