a. hartrodt France AEO Full certified


The a. hartrodt group was one of the first companies in Europe to be awarded a full AEO certificate. Since the 17th October 2017, we are proud to announce that a. hartrodt France has also received this certificate! 

Congratulations to our French offices!


The AEO concept is based on the Customs-to-Business partnership introduced by the World Customs Organisation (WCO). Traders who voluntarily meet a wide range of criteria work in close cooperation with customs authorities to assure the common objective of supply chain security.

The EU established its AEO concept based on the internationally recognised standards, creating a legal basis for it in 2008 through the 'security amendments' to the "Community Customs Code" (CCC) (Regulation (EC) 648/2005) and its implementing provisions.
