We have worked very closely with our customers on their BREXIT requirements since last year and will continue to do so, as the likely outcome remains unclear.

We are ahead of the process insofar as our team of dedicated BREXIT experts are as business-ready as they can be, to deal with a favourable or hard BREXIT outcome.

This team is headed up at Executive Team level with input across all functions such as Sales & Account Development, Information Communication & Technology, Operations and Finance along with knowledge and experience from our in-house Freight Forwarding division.

We are fully aware that each supplier will have different requirements and we look forward to discussing these with you.

Some of our customers have already secured contingency space across our facilities in the event of a No-Deal or hard BREXIT outcome.

As part of our BREXIT readiness programme, we have been granted AEO status by Irish Revenue

AEO status is a certified standard authorisation issued by customs administrations in the European Union. It demonstrates that an economic operator has met certain standards in relation to:

  • safety and security
  • systems to manage commercial records
  • compliance with customs rules
  • financial solvency &
  • practical standards of competence or professional qualifications

This is primarily a trade facilitation measure that recognises reliable operators and encourages best practice in the international supply chain. Benefits can be outlined as follows:

  • recognition worldwide as safe, secure and compliant business partners in international trade
  • lower risk scores in risk analysis systems when profiling
  • priority treatment if physical controls are conducted
  • mutual recognition of AEO programmes under Joint Customs Co-operation

Agreements which could result in faster movement of goods through third country borders

Reduced data sets for entry and exit summary declaration (this only applies to AEO safety and security)

Easier access to simplified procedures

Reduction or waiver of comprehensive guarantees


Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your needs, requirements or implementation proceedures with one of our experts. We are happy to assist you in any way we can.
