Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)

Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)

Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status is a global certification that confirms compliance with security measures and best practices in the international goods supply chain. The concept was created with the aim of implementing stringent and effective security measures that facilitate the flow of goods in international trade. Silmar Freight has AEOC (customs simplifications) status authorised by the Spanish Tax Agency.

This means that we have priority treatment in the procedures we perform when dealing with Customs (reduction of inspection and control circuits, priority in procedures, etc.), which facilitates and speeds up customs clearance.

This concept is recognised worldwide (among others by the World Customs Organisation – WCO), which means that exports handled by an AEO enjoy advantages in the countries that have signed the WCO’s SAFE agreement.
