With UCC Regulations now legally enforceable, it seemed even more important to explore what benefits AEO can bring to forwarders and what problems it would help us avoid; we ascertained quickly that AEO would be great for our business.
After meeting with Synergos Consultancy to gain knowledge of what was involved in the application process and a brief audit on where Sabre currently stood in terms of compliance, we had confidence that they would be able to provide just what we needed to gain AEO.
Now that Sabre has been awarded AEO, we now have the platform to move our business to the next level. We plan to promote our AEO status, allowing us to attract new opportunities from businesses that would perhaps not have used us previously. And, of course, we will maintain the processes that are required to ensure we run a compliant service.
We have been delighted at Synergos’ level of professionalism and efficiency in acquiring AEO status for our business.
I highly recommend any business to go for AEO status and to use Synergos to do so. From start to finish, they have been extremely helpful, explaining everything to us and keeping us informed every step of the way. They visited us to work with our teams and it was evident that Jenny from Synergos knew exactly what was required and what changes we needed to make. It proved to be a very cost effective approach for us, and as they offer a 100 per cent guarantee service, you have that added bit of protection.
