Crane Worldwide Logistics, a full-service air, ocean, trucking, customs brokerage and logistics company, continues its push for compliance excellence by providing benefits to customers by recently expanding its full Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) status in the Netherlands for the EMEA region.
AEO status was implemented in January of 2008 under the Taxation and Customs Union of the European Commission. To receive AEO status a business must satisfy certain criteria. Once a company has met these criteria for multiple regions of the globe and has been granted AEO status in one member state it is then recognized across all member states.
By being an AEO, Crane Worldwide is entitled to the benefit of customs simplifications/security and safety. Crane Worldwide benefits from both simplifications provided for under the customs rules and from facilitation of customs controls relating to security and safety.
“As we continue to expand our corporate compliance offerings, receiving this additional AEO status is a great achievement for our offices in the Netherlands,” said John Magee, Crane Worldwide’s President and CEO. “By being fully AEO recognized we are able to move our customers through customs more efficiently and effectively, continuing our tradition of providing high touch, high value and high service supply chain solutions.”
