Imorex secures AEOC accreditation


Warehouse and distribution specialist Imorex successfully achieved AEOC status this month (November 2020).


Ross Bryant, Imorex operations director, says of the accreditation: “Achieving AEOC was a crucial part of our business strategy to ensure all aspects of our customs and bonded warehousing operations and ETSF are fully compliant post-Brexit.

“We started the process back in April during the first lockdown, and the whole team has been working hard since then to ensure our application was successful. AEOC certification demonstrates we adhere to HMRC procedures and have adopted an internal operating standard throughout our business. Our hope is it will significantly reduce the probability of delays at the UK border post-Brexit, as well as provide other benefits such as faster application processes for customs simplifications and authorisations.”

Securing accreditation without the aid of an AEO consultant, Ross adds: “With Brexit now literally around the corner, AEO is a huge step towards being prepared, and we are confident it will provide us with a competitive advantage.”
