APM Terminals Valencia certified as Authorised Economic Operator by EU
APM Terminals Valencia, Authorized Economic Operator for Customs Simplification (AEOC) obtained the internationally recognised protection status from the EU last month, the company said in its report.
For consumers, if selected for monitoring, certification translates into simplified customs processes, less physical and document-based controls and prioritized care.
Marín states: "AEO status also means that the controls we have in place minimize delays and enable better planning, better customer service and lower inspection costs."
The terminal also meets all the safety criteria set out in the International Code for the Protection of Ships and Port Facilities (ISPS).
The AEO certification process allowed the terminals to comply a variety of procedures with the standards set by the Economic Community of Europe.
APM Terminals Valencia's rail terminal, which links directly with the national network to meet import or export needs anywhere in the Iberian Peninsula, already achieved AEO certification in 2016. It provides frequent trains to the region of Madrid and other regular connections to the country's main logistics areas.
