Teesport gains AEO

[ January 31, 2019   //   ]

PD Ports has gained Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status for its operations at Teesport, the first port in the Northern Powerhouse region to do so. The accreditation recognises that a business’ customs controls and procedures are efficient and meet EU benchmarks.
Chief executive Frans Calje, commented: “This will deliver some distinct benefits to many of our AEO accredited customers including greater access to priority clearance of cargoes, reduced administration, traceability of flows of goods and improved security between supply chain partners. There is much focus, in the light of Brexit, on the customs clearance of goods. AEO accreditation puts us on the front foot in making the movement of cargoes through Teesport as simple as possible.”
