The FINANCIAL — UPS announced on December 15 that the Taipei Customs Offices has granted three new Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) certifications to UPS for its airline, ground transportation, and brokerage operations in Taiwan. This is in addition to their approval to renew the five existing AEO certifications that were granted to UPS in 2012 for its warehousing and forwarding operations.
The AEO certifications recognize UPS as a reliable and secure transport operator with a solid compliance and regulatory history. They also demonstrate that UPS has adopted and implemented proper security and operational measures needed to secure its supply chain, thus allowing UPS shipments to go through customs clearance procedures in the fastest possible manner with minimal documentation and inspection requirements. This boosts UPS’s ability to serve its customers more efficiently, and as a result, customers are able to enjoy expedited processing of goods, enhance international trade and increase their competitiveness, according to UPS.
“With global commerce becoming increasingly demanding, having the ability to have goods shipped and cleared in the most efficient way possible is now a major competitive advantage,” said Wayne Pi, Managing Director of UPS Taiwan. “With the new certifications from the Taipei Customs Office, I’m pleased to say that UPS is now able to provide our customers with faster customs processing, allowing Taiwanese businesses to export and import internationally shipped goods with greater efficiency.
