C&C Express Ltd was recently awarded the full Authorised Economic Operator (AEOF) Certification by Malta Customs. Achieving AEOF status means the company has achieved the very highest levels in compliance, that it operates the best system of manag-ing commercial and transport records to ensure appropriate customs controls, and that it holds proven financial solvency and operates the most stringent security and safety standards.

C&C Express Ltd managing director Diana Cassar said that 16 companies in Malta have AEO status but only 11 have AEOF, which is considered as the top status and the one that carries the most weight for customs.

AEO certification, which is an internationally recognised accreditation throughout the EU and beyond, is granted to operators involved in the international supply chain, namely freight forwarders, customs brokers, carriers, ports and terminal operators, as well as manufacturers, importers and exporters. AEO status remains continuously monitored and is periodically reassessed to ensure continuous compliance with its strict criteria.

Achieving the AEOF status is another sound step in our business

Ms Cassar said: “Adhering to the highest operative and administrative standards has always been one of the most important principles in our business. It is our mission to deliver the safest and most professional service to our customers and achieving the AEOF status was another sound step in this direction.”

The AEOF certification was presented to Ms Cassar by Joseph Chetcuti, director general at Customs. Also present were Francis Callus, inspector of Customs and AEO contact point, John Azzopardi, quality assurance manager at C&C Express and Paul Bonello, Customs procedures and AEO programme advisor.

C&C Express Ltd, a member of the Cassar & Cooper Group, has been operating as global service participant for Federal Express since May 2017 and was appointed as TNT’s associate in 1987. FedEx acquired TNT Express in May 2016.
