Leschaco N.V., Belgium and Leschaco LTDA, Brazil gain AEO status

Bremen – Antwerp – Sao Paulo | October 2019: The global logistics service provider Leschaco has been granted the status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) for two further companies in the Group.

 AEO is an internationally recognized certificate and confirms that Leschaco N.V., Belgium and Leschaco LTDA, Brazil are reliable business partners for customs clearance in international trade. Customers benefit from simplified customs declaration procedures that allow them to complete customs formalities more quickly and efficiently. The AEO certification is a great success for the Leschaco branches in Belgium and Brazil and a further important step towards continuous efficiency and quality improvement in the operational business for the customers.
AEO-certified companies have passed through an extensive audit process by the customs authorities and are therefore considered to be fully compliant with local regulations. The Leschaco Group will constantly improve its service quality in order to offer its customers reliable and high-quality logistics services.

Information about AEO:
Supply chain security and trade simplification are becoming increasingly important around the world and are therefore central issues for customs. The AEO concept is based on the SAFE Framework of the World Customs Organization (WCO) and is the globally uniform standard which, in addition to the introduction of security standards, is intended to significantly facilitate trade. In many respects, the US program C-TPAT is cited as the inspiration for the SAFE framework. Another example is the "Authorized Economic Operator Program" of the European Union, whose AEO status has been granted since January 1, 2008. Open to all, economic operators voluntarily fulfil a variety of criteria that work closely with customs authorities to ensure the common goal of supply chain security and provide benefits to economic operators
