UPS Korea awarded AEO certification
UPS Korea has been awarded the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) certification by the Korea Customs Service. The certification, which is valid until April 2021, recognizes UPS’s adoption and implementation of supply chain security measures.
To be certified, UPS Korea has to maintain high standards in various areas, including legal, compliance, internal control systems, financial solvency, and security management.
“UPS Korea is committed to supporting and enabling our customers expand both regionally and globally with our highly efficient services,” said JK Rha, Managing Director of UPS in Korea. “By obtaining this certification, UPS Korea has set itself apart from the competition with stronger capabilities to streamline daily operations and to maintain high service quality, leading to better customer experience.”
UPS Korea said that its status as an AEO-certified carrier means it can “offer added benefits to its customers via simplified inspections and processes during customs clearance, hence enabling more efficient trade”.
