BDP Thailand has been awarded Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification by the Thailand Customs Department. AEO is a supply chain security programme developed by the member states of the European Union. In Thailand, the AEO certification is issued by Thailand Customs which follows the strict controls established by the World Customs Organisation.
AEO is considered to be the European equivalent of the Customs and Trade Pact Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) developed by customs authorities in the United States. Only a select number of companies in Thailand have been invited to apply for the certification. BDP Thailand’s customers will benefit from streamlined customs procedures and a fast-tracking of processes.
Stefan Krebs, BDP’s Thailand country manager said the accreditation comes after an extensive audit of BDP’s security measures by the Thai customs authorities. “BDP received the AEO certification after an extensive year-long audit processes. The AEO certification lets our customers and border authorities know that BDP is a reliable and trusted partner for all their logistics needs in and out of Europe,” Krebs said.
