The Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department has extended FedEx Express’s Hong Kong Authorised Economic Operator (HKAEO) license.
The HKAEO recognises organisations as a trusted partner in global supply chain security and movement of goods through fulfilling pre-determined security standards in handling cross-border shipments.
FedEx has been accredited since 2012 and enjoys benefits including reduced customs inspection and prioritised clearance in Hong Kong.
Anthony Leung, managing director of FedEx Express Hong Kong and Macau, said, “The extension of the accreditation enables us to continue to deliver on our purple promise – making every FedEx experience outstanding for our customers. We look forward to connecting more businesses, especially small and medium-size enterprises, to new possibilities around the world via FedEx comprehensive global network.”
To help customers save time and ensure shipments arrive promptly, customers can submit their clearance documents electronically using the FedEx Electronic Trade Documents tool providing pre-clearance assistance and proactive customer support.
