Hellmann gains AEO status in the UK
20 / 03 / 2015
Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK has been awarded authorised economic operator (AEO) status by HM Revenue & Customs.
The supply chain quality standard highlights businesses involved in the international supply chain.
The two-year process began in December 2012 and involved Hellmann training over 500 staff to complete the process and achieve its goal of becoming AEO certified.
HMRC inspected all areas of the business, offering recommendations for improvements, and making Hellmann UK the third country in the company’s global network to receive the accreditation.
Ian Dallow, security manager at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK, said: “Gaining the AEO status has been a lengthy process but something that has been extremely worthwhile. New procedures have been implemented and a more stringent security culture has been adopted to ensure the best service to our customers.
“AEO also provides us with additional business opportunities with major clients and a framework based on quality to help to drive the business forward.”
