Spatial Global, the freight forwarding, mail, courier, e-commerce, fulfilment, logistics and warehousing specialist, has been awarded EU Authorised Economic Operator status.
It now joins its sister company Tibbett Logistics, which achieved AEO certification in 2014. The award means that Spatial will be able to offer customers simplified customs procedures, plus priority customs clearance and fewer physical checks on freight moved, among other benefits.
The business is a member of Keswick Enterprises. Spatial chairman Mike Wallis said: “AEO status is a globally recognised quality mark that assures customers we are a secure international supply chain operator, with efficient and compliant customs controls and practices. It also enables us to fast-track many of their shipments worldwide.”
