Secure collection

Embassy Freight is part of the secure supply chain in accordance with AEO regulations. 
We ensure that unauthorised persons have no access to your shipments, so that you know your goods are in safe hands.


Embassy Freight Services has been AEO certified since November of 2012. AEO stands for Authorised Economic Operator. This certificate is issued by the customs authorities and declares that a company complies with all requirements concerning the international transportation of goods.

To ensure that sanctions and anti-terror laws are adhered to, we use modern compliance software that automatically checks all relevant companies against regularly updated lists, in the background. 

For our customers this means that goods transported by our services are subject to fewer custom inspections. In addition, when a customs inspection is conducted, it can be done at the place of unloading.
