Bergwerff Transport Service obtains AEO license

Bergwerff Transport Service recently received the authorization Authorized Economic Operator (AEO). An AEO license is issued by Customs if a company complies with the high security standards of Customs and the internal business processes are transparent. The AEO license provides various advantages for the operational management of Bergwerff. Physical and document checks are reduced, priority is given to checks and on request a check can be made at a specific location. Since Bergwerff itself produces transit documents, the waiting time at the Swiss border is significantly reduced. This advanced security is among other things a requirement for TAPA to issue a TSR 1 certificate. Since the internal processes also meet all requirements, Bergwerff is also TAPA TSR 1, 2 & 3 certified. In particular, the transports under this certification benefit from the AEO permit with the possibility of making transit documents. Transports that are carried out under the TAPA TSR standard may only take their rest at pre-approved parking spaces. If the transport has to make a Customs document on the way, this is a possible threat to the cargo, the external company that makes the Customs document is familiar with the cargo details and the driver loses the vehicle out of sight. Since Bergwerff Transport Service produces these transit documents itself, this risk is removed and unnecessary delays are eliminated.
