DSV prepares for Brexit with Authorised Economic Operator certificate

DSV prepares for Brexit with Authorised Economic Operator certificate

DSV has been awarded Authorised Economic Operator – Full (AEOF) certification in the UK, covering its road, air and sea, and solutions operations.

To achieve AEOF status, DSV had to prove it met specific criteria derived from the Union Customs Code, including showcasing an appropriate record of compliance, demonstrating a satisfactory system of managing commercial and transport records with customs controls, demonstrating financial solvency as well as appropriate security and safety standards.

UK customs and security manager, Phil Evans says: “DSV has always conducted itself in keeping with the expectations of an AEO, but now we have been through the accreditation process and made it official. The timing was right for us to formalise this standard as, increasingly, our customers were seeking the extra assurance that AEO Accreditation provides.”

Evans adds that DSV’s Brexit Action Group has been working on possible Brexit scenarios to ensure the company is ready for whatever happens after March 2019, and AEO would be an advantage.

He says: “However, the AEO accreditation isn’t the end for us. There is plenty of change to come within our business, we have always looking for ways to improve what we do and what we offer, to exceed the expectations of our customers and the authorities.”
