Supertouch® is proud to announce it has been granted Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status.
AEO is an internationally recognised quality mark signifying Supertouch® is trusted by the EU, and other major trading nations with the UK, to have efficient & compliant customs control procedures in place and that its position in the international supply chain is secure.
The granting of AEO status means Supertouch’s international customers will benefit from a faster and more efficient customs process with access to priority customs clearance reducing or eliminating delays to order consignments and enabling an improved supply chain for the end user.
Commenting on the accreditation, Arsalan Sultan, Financial Controller at Supertouch® added, “Achieving Authorised Economic Operator status is something we have been working towards since first developing our Brexit plan. It is a key part of being able to offer our customers in the EU the level of service they require from their major suppliers based in the UK”.
“As one of only 1,078 accredited companies in the UK to date (source gov.uk), achieving AEO status alongside organisations such as BAE Systems, ESSO and Rolls Royce is demonstration of Supertouch’s commitment to continually improve its service to its customer base in the EU and beyond, and the company looks forward to making further announcements in relation to this in the near future”.
