BDP International, a leading privately owned global logistics and transportation solutions company, has been named an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) in Turkey by the Turkish Ministry of Customs. AEO status allows for the seamless execution of customs and logistics operations while providing a number of positive contributions to companies engaging in foreign trade.
Attaining AEO certification is among the highest achievements in customs legislation and provides a multitude of international benefits. Companies with AEO status perform customs transactions at a more rapid pace and are subject to less physical control.
BDP's recognition of AEO status in Turkey involved a stringent 15-month process, including multiple on and off-site audits.
"This achievement was the result of passing challenging and meticulous audits, as well as completing a number of comprehensive procedures, and committing the strictest compliance and sustainability standards," said Fikret Ersoy, Managing Director of BDP Middle East, Turkey and Africa.
With the certification, BDP Turkey becomes the first global logistics service provider in Turkey — and is one of only 240 corporate firms — to be AEO-certified since 2012. This status will serve as a regional differentiator for BDP and for its customers.
"Our team is committed to our promise of delivering the best global logistics solutions to our esteemed customers," Ersoy said. "Thanks to the diligence and dedication of Serkan Alabas, Commercial Director, Gozde Ak?nc?, HSEQ Manager, and their teams, BDP Turkey is now poised to provide innovative and compliance-centric solutions to customers."
