GLS Austria has been registered with the customs authorities as an “authorised economic operator”. This means that international consignments can be handled more quickly and easily.
To obtain the certification, companies need to meet stringent security requirements. Alongside solvency, firms also have to demonstrate established processes and appropriate customs management procedures.
Speedier shipping – including to Switzerland
AEO status, and the lower risk rating that results from it, will ensure swifter customs clearance. Thanks to the simplified declaration procedure, there will be much fewer checks on goods and paperwork. This is also good news in light of the increasing number of exports to Switzerland handled by GLS Austria.
