May 7, 2019: Hauptzollamt Darmstadt (main customs office, Darmstadt, Germany) has awarded the status of Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) to time critical logistics firm, time:matters GmbH, in April.
With this certification, international customers can be sure at all times that time:matters satisfies the strictest requirements in global goods management and complies with all standards for effective protection of the customer supply chain.
The AEO status obtained by CB Customs Broker GmbH and now also time:matters GmbH is the highest possible official AEO certification. This combined authorization covers both the customs simplifications of the AEO-C status and the security and safety requirements of the AEO-S status.
Lars Krosch, COO of time:matters said: “By certifying our status, the customs office has officially approved that we are a reliable and trustworthy partner in international goods transport. This represents the logical next step and consolidation of our commitment to quality.”
In previous years, time:matters already received ISO 14001:2015 (environmental) and ISO 9001:2015 certification. Both of these confirm the company’s resolute efforts to meet the highest standards at all times in the area of environmental management and also in relation to quality.
The AEO certification aims to secure the continuous international supply chain, from the manufacturer through to the consumer. Companies based in the EU have been able to apply for this certification since 2008.
