Sonepar Deutschland has been certified as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO), a certification which allows them to guarantee their customers a particularly high level of security and reliability throughout their supply chain.

Sonepar Deutschland applied for certification as an AEO according to the customs law of the European Union, in order to accelerate international transports by fast tracking complex and time-consuming customs controls. This exponentially shortens delivery times, meaning customers are the ones who profit the most from this highly efficient clearance process. AEO Customs Simplifications, Security and Safety certification is reliant upon Sonepar Deutschland’s adherence to strict security standards, ensuring compliance with legal provisions, reliability and financial solvency. The AEO status is also recognized outside of Europe and is valid throughout Germany for all branches of the company.

Another benefit of the certification is that Sonepar Deutschland has been added to the list of ‘known operators’ at the Federal Office of Civil Aeronautics. This allows the company prepare orders for shipping and deliver them to a freight plane within five hours, a process which would normally take between 48 and 96 hours without such a certification.
