Integrity and quality, Remant Douane’s winning formula in Belgium

Authorized Economic Operator (AEO)
Remant applauds the European Union’s initiatives in establishing standards to secure and facilitate global trade, resulting in the creation of the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) certificate. For Remant, this confirms and acknowledges our ongoing efforts in the areas of professionalism, integrity and solvency.

Remant Douane NV is also actively involved in the pilot project "Centralised Clearance". This means that the customs administration of goods imported into the European Union (starting for the Netherlands) must no longer be done at the location where the cargo enters the EU, with the advantage that all customs formalities can be fulfilled through PLDA by the Belgian Unique Office.  The start of the project is expected in 2013.
