Asendia UK, a leading global logistics provider, announces the attainment of the coveted Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) accreditation from HM Revenue & Customs for its export operations.
This significant achievement marks further progress in Asendia UK’s unwavering commitment to optimising and streamlining its export processes.
By securing this accreditation, Asendia UK gains the capability to consolidate goods and simplify the customs declaration process, all while conducting meticulous internal checks for compliance and administrative accuracy, significantly reducing the need for external brokers.
Asendia UK can now manage export declarations for goods worth up to £900 internally, with no need to refer to a broker.
A key advantage of MoU accreditation is for the retail clients who are assured that their parcels are handled by an entity that is fully trusted by the Customs authorities to assure all relevant procedures are followed, while achieving a more streamlined approach with one less stop in the supply chain. It will allow for expedited export clearance for trucks, translating into swifter deliveries to vital transportation hubs like ports and airports.
Widely recognised as an industry standard, MoU accreditation places Asendia UK in the esteemed company of other major players in the field, and underscores its dedication to meeting industry standards and elevating service quality.
This accreditation grants Asendia UK the flexibility to conduct checks within its own operational timeline. This flexibility translates into a more efficient and dependable export process, providing substantial benefits to Asendia UK’s e-commerce customers.
With approximately 98% of the company’s export volume benefiting from the streamlined MoU process, operational efficiency receives a substantial boost.
The accreditation will mitigate the risk of delays, offering unprecedented peace of mind to retailers and customers alike.
Commitment to Industry Excellence
Asendia UK’s dedication to upholding the highest industry standards is further highlighted by recent accreditations and certifications, including the AEO certification achieved earlier in 2023.
Dave Yarnell, Customs and Compliance Advisor at Asendia UK, says, “We are thrilled to have achieved MoU accreditation for our export operations. This milestone is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and our commitment to offering the best and unparalleled service to our clients. We’re excited about the positive impact this accreditation will have on our operations and look forward to continuing to raise the bar in the logistics industry.”
