Ireland’s Network International Cargo wins AEO

[ January 11, 2019   //   ]

Irish-owned firm Network International Cargo celebrated its Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification recently with a ceremony at Government Buildings. Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys presented the certificate to the forwarder’s head of compliance, Margaret Nulty.
Issued by the Irish Revenue and Customs authorities but recognised throughout the EU, AEO status rewards best practice in the international supply chain and helps facilitate the faster movement of goods through customs borders. Network International Cargo says it will gain benefits such as lower scores in customs risk analysis, simplified customs procedures and priority treatment for physical examination of goods.
The company had to meet stringent eligibility criteria for the standard in relation to its security arrangements, management systems, financial solvency and compliance with customs rules and procedures.
Managing director, Eddie Bowers, said: “We at Network International Cargo are proud to have achieved AEO certification. This represents another milestone reached on the journey of Network International Cargo and one that will be of great benefit to the Company and its customers.”
He continued: “AEO certification together with ISO 9001 Quality Management System, Aviation Security Approval and Good Distribution Practice Passport ensures we are best placed to serve our customers into the future”.
