Dachser Korea announced Aug 6 that they have been officially conferred the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification. This title attests that Dachser Korea is a trustworthy business partner to handle customs clearance in international trade.
Customers can enjoy enhanced export competitiveness thanks to swift customs clearance with fewer security and safety related controls as well as priority treatment at customs clearance.
“Obtaining the AEO certification is a major achievement for Dachser in Korea and marks another significant step towards reaching optimal efficiency and quality in our operative business”, said Roman Mueller, Managing Director Air & Sea Logistics Korea.
The certification also recognises Dachser’s excellence in digital process management and documentation. Transport processes are fully transparent through the company’s comprehensive air and sea transport management system, Othello.
An SOP database provides full overview of process descriptions which are supported by internal control systems, while material on foreign trade compliance is also well documented and readily available.
“AEO certified companies have gone through an extensive auditing process by customs authorities therefore are considered fully compliant with local rules and regulations,” Mueller explained. “One of the benefits of this is having simplified trade and customs processes at import and export.”
Furthermore, Korean customs has selected Dachser for a joint audit with the United States Customs authorities. Under the Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRA) between US and Korea, Dachser’s AEO certification is now also recognised by the US, which means that Dachser Korea is capable of serving transpacific business even more efficiently.
