FedEx Express is re-certified as a HK Authorised Economic Operator
FEDEX Express has again been certified as a Hong Kong Authorised Economic Operator (HKAEO) by the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department
FEDEX Express has again been certified as a Hong Kong Authorised Economic Operator (HKAEO) by the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department.
The HKAEO programme aims to recognise organisations as a trusted partner of the Department to facilitate global supply chain security and movement of goods by fulfilling the pre-determined security standards in handling cross-border shipments. The company has been accredited as a HKAEO since the programme was launched in 2012.
As a HKAEO, FedEx enjoys customs facilitation benefits, including reduced customs inspection and prioritised customs clearance in Hong Kong. In addition, these benefits are also applicable to its shipments, which are exported to the 11 countries under the Mutual Recognition Arrangement upon arrival.
'At FedEx, we are committed to provide fast and reliable services to our customers, while complying with applicable rules and regulations in the markets where we operate,' said managing director Anthony Leung, 'We look forward to connecting more businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, to new possibilities around the world.'
FedEx has 3,000 staff in its global network specifically handling customs clearance for millions of packages passing through its network every day. To ensure shipments arrive timely, customers can submit their clearance documents electronically in advance using the Electronic Trade Documents (ETD), a tool which aims to prevent delays.
