Spatial Global Limited, the freight forwarding, mail, courier, e-commerce, fulfilment, logistics and warehousing specialist based at Castle Donington in the United Kingdom, announces that it has been awarded EU Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status by HM Revenue & Customs from 11 November.
The business is a member of The Keswick Enterprises Group Limited, and was named ‘Employer of the Year’ for Derbyshire in this year’s East Midlands Business Awards.
Spatial Global now joins its sister company Tibbett Logistics, which achieved AEO certification in 2014. The award means that Spatial will be able to offer customers simplified customs procedures, plus priority customs clearance and fewer physical checks on freight moved, among other benefits.
Mike Wallis, Executive Chairman of Spatial Global, said:
AEO status is a globally recognised quality mark that assures customers we are a secure international supply chain operator, with efficient and compliant customs controls and practices. It also enables us to fast-track many of their shipments worldwide.
In addition, Spatial’s AEO status demonstrates that the business has a solid tax and customs compliance history, with good record-keeping standards, and that the business is financially secure.
Spatial Global specialises in providing international delivery and logistics services for publishers, marketers, e-commerce/e-retail companies, educational suppliers, healthcare/pharmaceutical specialists and construction/engineering businesses – among many others – from distribution centres in Castle Donington and Swadlincote.
It has 60 full-time staff, and operates across 220 countries worldwide through a network of trusted partners and agents.
