Port of Tyne granted AEO status

The UK's port of Tyne has been granted Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status as part of its preparations for the UK's exit from the European Union (Brexit).

AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark, awarded by HMRC, which means that the port's Customs checks and processes meet international standards, giving the UK gateway faster access to simplified Customs procedures.

According to the port, it is one of only a handful of UK gateways to be awarded full AEO status for both Customs simplification and fast track security and safety processes.

“The award of AEO status means that the port of Tyne will be fully prepared whatever the outcome of the ongoing Brexit negotiations," said the UK port's ceo Matt Beeton. "Our customers will know that we’re a safe and secure business partner and that we’ll have streamlined arrangements in place to move goods across international borders quickly and easily."

Graeme Hardie, head of operations at the port of Tyne, added that the status "will, potentially, avoid delays, creating greater efficiencies, and will ensure goods are imported and exported as swiftly and securely as possible".
