The Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certificate recognises Ferdinand Zandbergen BV as a distributor with a secure supply chain. This means that the quality of the entire logistic chain is guaranteed, which ensures the safe transport of goods. The starting point is an assessment of security and safety procedures in a broad sense.
AEO recognition concerns the security of the entire supply chain (chain approach). This means the flow of goods is monitored, from producer to consumer . Other systems that are comparable to the AEO concept apply outside the EU. Comparison is possible thanks to the standard developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO).
