Maco Customs Service: brokerage, software & consultancy

AEO Certification

Printvriendelijke versie

Since January 2011, Maco Customs Service Netherlands B.V. and Maco Customs Service Rotterdam B.V. have been AEO certified for customs and security. Our office in Antwerp, Maco Customs Service Belgium BVBA, has been AEO certified since 2015 for customs and security.​

The certification process was a major operation that involved a lot of work. Although Maco’s business processes were sound, they had to be evaluated and partly redesigned to meet AEO requirements. During the application process, Maco decided that special customs software was needed in order to meet the AEO standards and to improve the service we offer to our clients. Maco is now the only customs broker in the Netherlands to have developed its own customs software, which is called Maco Customs Connect (MCC). Clients of Maco can use MCC to make their own customs declarations. This enables our clients to save at least 30% on their customs costs. If you would like to have more information on this subject, please contact our Customer Service via this form.

Maco offers consultancy to customers who wish to apply for their own AEO certification. Please contact our Customer Service for more information.
