Obtaining and maintaining an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) authorisation gives your organisation a distinct competitive advantage when it comes to international trade, but it can be a herculean task for customs managers. Collecting and organising data scattered throughout the organisation is not only time-consuming but also error-prone and difficult to manage. Using the good old excel spreadsheets can be a pain if you need to gather inputs from several collaborators and organise, review and validate them in a coherent way.
With the AEO authorisation a company can obtain certain important benefits, such as authorisations from Customs Authorities for simplified procedures, reduced time-critical customs controls, and the privileges of reduced guarantees.
Using Customs4trade’s Customs Accounting System (CAS) AEO Tool, you can compile the data you need via one centralised hub, using our self assessment questionnaires. Our experts could analyse your self-assessment and provide guidance to ensure your application meets the AEO requirements. You can rely on us to help you prepare everything you need to be approved and authorised by customs.

All the data and annexes for your AEO application can be compiled and accessed via a single, centralised hub, eliminating the use of cumbersome spreadsheets and file shares.

The application for AEO authorisations involves filling out a detailed and extensive self-assessment questionnaire that requires input from a variety of internal stakeholders across departments.

It supports simultaneous collaboration amongst contributors in different locations with different language backgrounds and provides detailed explanations of questionnaire content in a variety of languages. Questions can be assigned to users and coordinators can easily query the system to find out real-time status.
