Frankfurt, 13 November 2008 - CEVA Logistics, one of the leading supply chain companies in the world, has achieved the status as an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) in Germany. With this accreditation CEVA is amongst the first 100 companies in Germany, earning the certification.
The AEO concept constitutes a main element of the Customs Security Program of the European Union. With the implementation of the status as an Authorised Economic Operator beginning at January 1st 2008, the European Union has agreed on improved measures of security in combination with customs simplifications. CEVA is now relieved from a series of customs checks and compulsory registrations.
"The AEO-certification is very important for us, since it is a significant criterion for our customers.", says Thomas Kuhn, Country Manager for the Freight Management division of CEVA in Germany. "With this certification we have demonstrated to be a trustful partner, who can set up excellent security concepts and measures."
