Rhenus renews its Full AEO accreditation for thirteen of its French sites

Rhenus has obtained renewal of two of its Full AEO accreditations for its sites in France, without discrepancies, following audits conducted by the Lyon, Paris and Rouen customs offices. The Rhenus logistics sites in France have Full Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) accreditation, and some since 2010.

Valid for three years, these accreditations put Rhenus ahead of its competitors by offering customers simplified and streamlined customs formalities as well as a more secure supply chain. In 2021, Rhenus also underwent a successful audit as part of the renewal of one of its oil customers’ AEO accreditation at a SEVESO site, as its on-site logistics provider.

This work was successfully completed thanks to close cooperation between the Rhenus management system and quality teams and customs experts. This joint effort also ensured the successful coordination of the various departments involved. In order to meet its staff awareness and training obligations, Rhenus has designed accessible e-learning modules on its LMS (Learning Management System) platform.

“Full AEO accreditation is a fundamental component of the competitiveness of our company, which is a crucial link in our customers’ supply chains. Thanks to our customs expertise, in-depth understanding of security and safety regulations, and the remarkable work of our staff and the coordination team, the renewal of our accreditation was a major success that our customers will continue to benefit from,” said Pascal Yves, Managing Director of Rhenus Logistics France.
