One of the UK's leading customs agents, a Preston-based enterprise, has been awarded AEO status. 

Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status is an internationally recognised standard, providing firms with a 'trusted trader' status. The internationally recognised accreditation involves multiple HMRC site visits and rigorous inspection. Everything from finance and procedures to customs compliance and knowledge is investigated during the vetting process.

If successful in their application, businesses accredited with AEO status are able to demonstrate their strong role in the international supply chain and commitment to excellence. Just 25 UK companies were granted AEO status in 2023.

Jason Mayor, Director of CustomsLink, stated: "This marks an important milestone for us, as AEO status is awarded to companies who demonstrate consistent compliance and quality service. Thank you to HMRC, to our brilliant team, and of course to our wonderful customers who have trusted us as their customs partner."
