Ventana Serra obtains AEO certification in Belgium

An important recognition in the field of international trade, for ever greater reliability and efficiency of service

At the end of the investigation process, Ventana Serra obtained the AEO certification in Belgium, issued by the Customs Agency with effect from 02 June 2020. The status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certifies a state of specific reliability vis-à-vis the customs authorities. It is part of the new computerised procedures in relations between private parties and authorities responsible for control activities in international trade.

The advantages of being an AEO certified operator are numerous: the acquisition of a status of reliability and security with unlimited community value, reduced customs controls at import and at borders, faster shipments thanks to customs simplifications, and facilitations in the security sector, to name but a few.

“The certification allows our company in Belgium to access customs simplifications and security controls,” comments Silvano Cavallotto - General Manager of Ventana Serra - who continues: “Thanks to this new step, we are able to access a series of important benefits for the customers of our services, who can count on increasing reliability and efficiency”.

The recognition is the result of preparatory work that lasted several months and which saw the collaboration of Safety, Quality and Environmental Department of Ventana in Belgium and Italy, where the company obtained the AEOF certificate in 2011.

Ventana Serra BVBA is also ISO 9001-2015 certified since 2017; with the AEO certificate, Ventana Serra confirms its commitment to provide customers with a service in line with the best practices in the sector.
