Timmermans granted AEO and type C license

Timmermans granted AEO and type C customs warehousing license


Timmermans transport & logistics in Diessen, a division of Carpenter Europe, is classified by Customs as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) where also a type C customs warehouse is established. This declares that Timmermans has received the classification of a reliable partner in the international freight logistics. Based on this, Customs authorities grant special privileges that contribute to a faster flow of goods. Therefor Timmermans has full customs warehousing facilities at its disposal for companies seeking an operating base in the European continent.

After an intensive process of inspections and training, Timmermans has been granted approval to, with special custom software, store goods and prepare all necessary export documents. In a type C customs warehouse, goods can be stored for an unlimited period of time. There is no physical inspection or interference by customs. The inspection is done on the basis of stock administration, whereas only random physical inspections take place by entry and clearance of goods. Through Timmermans in Diessen, all customers of the partners in the Carpenter Europe group, both in the Netherlands and Poland, benefit from the advantages of these customs facilities.

Benefits of type C customs warehouse

The type C customs warehouse and AEO certification offers multiple advantages for the customers at importing, storing and exporting of taxable goods:

  • Cost saving
  • Cash flow optimization
  • Fast im- and export procedure
  • In house import and export declarations and transport documents
  • Repackaging of goods under customs supervision (VAL/VAS)
  • Preventing the payment of duties for deliveries outside the EU
  • Shifting the payment of duties for deliveries within the EU
  • The release of goods for foreign companies (fiscal representation)

The obtained AEO certificate gives recognition by the customs that Timmermans is a reliable address for a safe and controlled logistical process, from the point where the goods are shipped to the point where the goods are delivered. A good complimentary service in line with the complete logistical solutions which Carpenter Europe has to offer.
