Felixstowe-based international freight company Interfreight UK is celebrating after it was granted Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status.

The quality marque cements the company’s position in the international supply chain and demonstrates custom controls and procedures are efficient and compliant with HMRC requirements.

In order to achieve AEO status, the company had to satisfy a number of stringent criteria including a good tax and compliance history, appropriate security and safety measures, good commercial and transport record-keeping standards and financial solvency.

Firm owner Danny Summers said: “This is fantastic news for us as there are currently only around 500 companies in the UK who have achieved AEO certification and it stands us in line with the likes of Asda, IBM and British Airways so we’re in very good company. Equally, it further cements our position in the international market.”
