BF Global Logistics B.V. announces that it has received the F Certificate of Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) for its Air, Road, Sea and Value added logistics services. Awarded by the Dutch customs authorities, this version of the certificate includes customs simplification as well as facility safety. The granting and maintenance of the AEO status is attached to comprehensive conditions which required BF Global Logistics B.V. to demonstrate their reliability and compliance with the relevant legal and security provisions.
