Asian Tigers Korea is Now an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO)
26 Apr 2019
The Korean offices of Asian Tigers Group announced today that it has obtained an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) certification issued by Korea Customs Service in compliance with the World Customs Organization SAFE framework.
The AEO certification is an internationally recognized quality mark for business entities that can meet international standards, including law compliance, internal safety & security controls, risk factor management, financial solvency and supply chain management. Candidates are required to provide complete transparency concerning all operational, financial and corporate governance practices, as well as adherence to all customs requirements. Recipients are regarded as safe and secure global trading partners.
An increasing number of shippers and companies, especially multinational ones, are demanding freight forwarders have or obtain an AEO certification before any business transaction can take place. The certification provides a profile of transparency and solvency, while giving authorities and global supply chain a reliable partner that adheres to both an efficient and compliant customs control process.
Joseph Song, CEO, stated, “Our clients gain certainty that we, as their logistics partner, have surpassed tight benchmarks in regards to standards of operation and compliance. We want to remain ahead of the curve in dealing with the ‘new normal’ of today’s evolving business environment. Our goal is to constantly adapt and endeavor to global best practices for the benefit of our clients and further educational enrichment of our employees.”
