Leschaco Indonesia Receives AEO Certification

Bremen, Germany | Jakarta, Indonesia – June 2024: P.T. Leschaco Logistic Indonesia, a leading global logistics service provider, has recently received the valuable AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) certification. This highlights Leschaco's dedication to delivering reliable and high-quality logistics services worldwide.

Leschaco Indonesia has successfully acquired the AEO certification, which is a major milestone for the subsidiary, showing the company as a trusted partner for customs clearance in international trade. This also reflects the hard work of the teams and their will and effort to deliver top-notch logistics to Leschaco customers not only locally in Indonesia but also in the Asia-Pacific region and across the globe. Indonesia has over 1,000 registered freight forwarding companies, but just 166 of them are AEO certified and able to help their customers simplify and speed customs clearance.

“We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious AEO certification. This recognition places us at the forefront of operational excellence, safety and security aspects in the industry, reinforcing our commitment to delivering high-quality service. Special thanks to the entire P.T. Leschaco Logistic Indonesia Team for their unwavering support and trust”, says Holger Albrecht, Managing Director of Leschaco Indonesia and concludes: “We are committed to continuing to provide exceptional service while maintaining the highest standards of performance, including consideration of the highest levels of safety and security.”

The process of becoming an AEO certified freight forwarder involves meeting high standards and criteria such as compliance with customs legislation, appropriate record-keeping, financial solvency, and proven competence in security measures. After the application is submitted and approved, the AEO status granted is recognized across all EU Member States.

For the Leschaco Group quality and reliability of offered logistics services are of utmost importance. Achieving AEO certification is a step in the direction of streamlined and reliable logistics and supply chain solutions for Leschaco customers. It fosters close cooperation with customs authorities and leads to better planning, customer service, and reduced delays and costs.

About AEO: The security of the supply chain and the simplification of trade are becoming increasingly important worldwide and are therefore among the central topics of customs. The AEO concept is based on the SAFE Framework of the World Customs Organisation (WCO) and is the globally uniform standard which, in addition to the introduction of security standards, is intended to significantly simplify trade. In many respects, the US C-TPAT programme is cited as the inspiration for the SAFE framework. Another example is the "Authorised Economic Operator Programme" of the European Union, whose AEO status has been awarded since 01.01.2008. Open to all, economic operators voluntarily fulfil a variety of criteria, working closely with customs authorities to ensure the common goal of supply chain security and offer benefits to economic operators.
