New AEOF certification for DFDS

In Spring 2019 a working group was formed to prepare the AEOF application for DFDS Logistics Karlshamn AB and DFDS Logistics AB. Sofie Fredrikson, Mats Rodin and Bodil Johansson were the core membersAt the end of October they submitted their application and the next step in the journey towards AEOF was taken.

Authorized Economic Operator –Full (AEOF) certification is the highest level achievable and comprises customs simplifications and security. This status is recognised throughout the European Union and is extremely valuable. It means that you are a trusted partner for the authorities and it eases the cooperation and customs processes so we can better assist our customers with customs services.  

During the year, many of our colleagues all over DFDS and external suppliers have been involved in various ways to help achieve this important status. 

Getting the AEOF stamp of approval is no easy feat, as described in last week’s article ‘Brexit: what’s in place. The journey has been challenging in many ways but on 7 October the message from the Swedish Customs Authority came with the fantastic news that DFDS Logistics Karlshamn AB and DFDS Logistics AB are now confirmed as AEOF authorised, as of 12 October.
