AIT Worldwide Logistics’ Italy Offices Achieve AEOC Certification

All three of the global supply chain solutions leader’s Italy locations are now AEOC certified

ITASCA, IL (July 11, 2024) – The Italian Customs and Monopolies Agency recently approved AIT Worldwide Logistics’ three in-country locations—both its general and life sciences-focused facilities in Milan, as well as its facility in Turin—for Authorized Economic Operator Customs Simplifications certification (AEOC). This status grants the offices priority customs clearance treatment. 
“Our momentum across Europe is truly remarkable, and the Italy team's latest achievement is a meaningful contribution to the company’s vision,” said AIT Senior Vice President, Europe, Gary Roche. “Securing the AEOC certification is a significant milestone that will enhance our ability to provide an even faster and more seamless customs clearance experience for our clients across a range of industries.”

“This certification affirms that we are supporting our clients' growth with reduced risks and improved efficiency, further reinforcing AIT's position as a trusted logistics partner,” he added.

The AEOC certification is an internationally recognized mark of quality that demonstrates an organization’s secure role in the global supply chain. A business needs to meet a strict range of criteria to earn this certification, across customs compliance, record keeping, financial solvency, and professional qualifications.
“I am immensely proud of our team in Italy for their dedication and hard work in achieving the AEO Customs Simplifications certification,” said AIT-Italy Country Manager, Federico Vincinelli. “Completing the rigorous audit process is a testament to our high performance and strict regulatory compliance. Our team continues to deliver efficient and reliable solutions for our customers, ensuring they receive the best possible service every step of the way.”
