Press Release

In the current context of economic globalization, the security and efficiency of international supply chains play a fundamental role. Companies operating in this environment are constantly seeking solutions to optimize their logistics processes while ensuring maximum security. In this scenario, the AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) certification emerges as a key tool, offering a wealth of opportunities and benefits for companies engaged in international trade. This article by Savino Del Bene provides a comprehensive guide on the topic of AEO.


What is the AEO?


The status of Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) certifies a specific situation of reliability of a particular entity towards the Customs and is part of the new computerized procedures in relations between private entities and authorities responsible for control activities in international trade. The WCO (World Customs Organization) defines an “Authorized Economic Operator” as a party involved in the international movement of goods in whatever function that has been approved by or on behalf of a national customs administration.


Why was the AEO program established?


Growing global trade and increasing security threats to the movement of goods around the world have forced customs administrations to focus on securing the flow of international trade instead of just collecting customs duties.


For this reason, in the context of international shipping services, the WCO (World Customs Organization) drafted the Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade, known as SAFE. This is based on the following four principles:

  • Advance electronic cargo information is harmonized;
  • Each country follows a consistent approach to risk management to address security issues;
  • The sending country’s customs authorities will undertake outbound inspections of high-risk containers and cargo at the request of the receiving country’s customs authorities;
  • Customs authorities will define the benefits for businesses that meet minimal supply chain standards.


The AEO program itself is a fundamental part of SAFE.


Who can obtain an AEO status and how?


AEO certification can be granted to economic operators and their commercial partners involved in the international supply chain: producers, exporters, shipping companies, customs brokers, warehouse keepers, carriers, and importers.


Who can obtain AEO certification


More specifically, the subjects who can apply for AEO certificates are:

  • Economic operators established in the customs territory of the Community who carry out activities related to customs operations;
  • Non-EU economic operators if there is a mutual recognition agreement of the AEO certificate between the Community and the third country where the applicant is established;
  • Non-EU air or maritime companies that have a local office or benefit from customs simplifications.


The European Commission manages a database of AEO certified operators who have given their consent to the publication of their data. The database is accessible here.


What are the benefits of being an AEO


Being an Authorized Economic Operator entails a series of benefits that can be divided into general benefits and benefits related to customs controls:

  • Easier access to customs simplifications;
  • Facilitations for security controls;
  • Advance notice in case of selection for goods inspection;
  • Reduction of the amount of data to be provided for the customs summary declaration;
  • Less physical and document control of shipments;
  • Priority treatment of cargo in case of selection for control;
  • Possibility of choosing the place of control.


Why work with an AEO: the advantages


Working with an Authorized Economic Operator offers significant advantages for companies that use their customs services. These advantages derive directly from the benefits that AEOs receive from customs authorities, transforming import and export operations into more streamlined, secure, and efficient processes:

  • Reduction of waiting times at borders and better logistical planning;
  • Increased security in the supply chain;
  • Simplification of customs paperwork management;
  • Priority treatment of selected shipments for controls;
  • Possibility of choosing the place of control.

Mutual recognition of AEO: what it is and how it works


AEO mutual recognition is a fundamental principle in international trade designed to facilitate trade operations between different countries. This concept is based on the agreement between two or more national customs authorities according to which AEO statuses issued within their jurisdiction are mutually recognized. Over the years, there have been numerous mutual recognitions of Authorized Economic Operator programs with third countries such as Norway, Switzerland, Japan, the United States, China, Canada, South Africa, and others. Many countries have adopted the CEE “AEO” acronym, while others like the United States (C-TPAT) use other equivalent acronyms.


Is Savino Del Bene an AEO?

In the context of sea freight shipments, two essential documents regulate the maritime transport of goods: the Bill of Lading and the Sea Waybill (or Express B/L). Despite their apparent similarities, these documents hold distinct roles and functionalities. Through a detailed analysis presented by Savino Del Bene, this article endeavors to delineate the differences between these critical documents, providing a comprehensive understanding of their respective value in the global maritime trade.


What is the Bill of Lading?


For ocean shipments the Bill of Lading (B/L) can be considered the most important document, it’s the evidence of the contract of carriage between the carrier and the shipper. The Bill of Lading provides proof of loading on board the vessel specified therein (this differentiates it from the “Received for Shipment B/L” which proves the delivery of the goods to the carrier). 


Upon issue, the maritime carrier therefore certifies that it has loaded the goods onto a specific vessel for shipment and undertakes to deliver them to their destination. The carrier or its agent issues a set consisting of originals (usually three) and non-negotiable copies.


The original copies must be duly signed by the master, the carrier or their agents; usually, in daily practice, it is the agent of the carrier who issues and signs most of them. The presentation of the first original will invalidate the validity of the remaining ones.

The functions of the Bill of Lading


The B/L performs the following functions:

  • Receipt for goods: the Bill of Lading serves as confirmation that the goods have been received by the carrier.
  • Shipment’s contract: as mentioned, this document constitutes legal proof of the contract of carriage between the carrier and the shipper. Terms and conditions are shown on reverse.
  • Document of Title: the Bill of Lading is a document of title of the goods described. Thanks to its negotiable nature, the B/L can be transferred from one party to another by endorsement. 


The legitimate holder of the Bill of Lading has the right to obtain from the carrier the delivery of the goods indicated in the title, the right to dispose of the goods and has the possession of the goods, this is a symbolic possession but equivalent to the physical one.


It’s divisible: if the cargo, even during the voyage, is destined for multiple buyers, it would be possible to divide the B/L into several delivery orders, depending on the number of receivers of the goods.


How is the Bill of Lading filled out?


The fields typically filled out in most Bills of Lading are as follows: 

    • Shipper: e.g. name and address of the exporter or the freight forwarder;
    • Consignee: e.g. name and address of the importer or the freight forwarder. If this field shows “to the order” or “to the order of…” the B/L is negotiable;
    • Notify Party: name and address of the party (or of the parties) to be notified when the cargo arrives at destination that could be different from the consignee;
    • Booking number: a unique numeric or alphanumeric code assigned by the shipping company;
    • B/L number: a unique alphanumeric code assigned by the shipping company;
    • Vessel and voyage: name and specific voyage number of the ship;
    • Port of loading: the port where goods have been loaded onto the vessel;
    • Port of discharge: the port where goods will be unloaded from the vessel;
    • Place of receipt (for combined shipment only): the location where the goods were received for shipment;
    • Place of delivery (for combined shipment only): the final destination where the goods will be delivered;
    • Container number: the unique identifier for the container holding the goods;
    • Seal number: the unique number of the seal (or the seals) securing the container;
    • Marks and No.: identifying marks and numbers on the cargo;
    • Description of the goods and packages: detailed description of the goods being shipped;
    • Gross weight: the weight of the goods including packaging;
    • Measurement: the volume of the goods including packaging;
    • Shipped on board date: this date, if present, indicates that it is a Bill of Lading and not a Received for Shipment B/L;
    • Place and date of issue: location and date when the bill of lading was issued.


What is the Sea Waybill?


Unlike the Bill of Lading, the Sea Waybill (or Express B/L) is not a document of title representing the goods. The Sea Waybill, which is always named and never to the order, is issued without original copies: only non-negotiable copies exist.


The Sea Waybill is mainly used to speed up the procedures for the delivery of goods at destination. Typically, it is used when there is a trust relationship between sender and receiver, when goods are shipped between companies of the same group, and by freight forwarders who act as shippers and consignees with their respective offices or support agents at the origin and destination.


The functions of the Sea Waybill


The Sea Waybill performs the following functions:

  • Receipt for goods: the Sea Waybill serves as confirmation that the goods have been received by the carrier;
  • Shipment’s contract: this document constitutes legal proof of the contract of carriage between the carrier and the shipper. Terms and conditions are shown on reverse.


The Sea Waybill:

  • Is used to speed up the procedures and delivery times at the port of arrival;
  • Is usually issued when there are shipments which payment of goods is not bound;
  • Is always issued to a specific name (Consignee field);
  • Is not a negotiable document;
  • May not need to be presented by the legitimate consignee for the release of the shipment (payment of expenses to shipping company, a document proving to be the importer and the customs papers will suffice).

Sea Waybill vs Bill of Lading: a detailed comparison


Considering the different features and functions, the difference between the Bill of Lading and Sea Waybill should already be clear. However, in the following table, we try to make a final comparison between the two documents related to ocean shipments:


Feature Bill of Lading Sea Waybill
Document of Title Yes No
Negotiation Yes Not negotiable
Release of goods Physical document needed The physical document may not be necessary
Originals Yes  No, only non-negotiable copies
Bureaucratic procedure More complex Less complex
Delivery timing Longer Shorter
Administrative costs Higher Lower




It is evident that the Bill of Lading and Sea Waybill offer different advantages and disadvantages, therefore the choice of the most appropriate document depends on a careful evaluation of the specific needs related to the individual shipment. In this regard, if you need the advice of experts in the field, you can rely on the international shipping services offered by Savino Del Bene.

International shipments in the fashion industry represent a highly complex activity that requires specific solutions to ensure adequate product protection. In this context, instead of standard containers, Garments On Hanger (GOH) containers and pallets are increasingly being used, which are specially designed structures for shipping hanging clothing items. This innovative solution not only streamlines the logistics process but also ensures that your garments reach their destination in impeccable condition, ready to hit the racks.


In the realm of GOH freight forwarding, the mode of transportation is as pivotal as the systems employed. Sea freight, utilizing specialized containers, and airfreight, with its palletized systems, present distinct advantages and considerations for businesses navigating the intricacies of garment transportation. In this article by Savino Del Bene, we will delve into the benefits of GOH transport and warehousing and why it’s a must-have for businesses in the fashion industry.




What are Garments On Hanger containers?

Firstly, GOH containers are dry containers specifically designed to ensure optimal transportation of clothing items. Made of metal or plastic, they come in two different sizes: 20’ and 40’. Their uniqueness lies in the presence of hooks, which allow clothing to be shipped with the utmost protection using a string or bar system. The number of hooks can vary depending on the size and type of system used. These containers offer cost-effectiveness and high capacity, making them an ideal choice for businesses with significant volumes.



Two different types of GOH Containers: bar system and string system

As mentioned earlier, there are two main types of Garments On Hanger containers. In these containers, you can use either the string system or the bar system. Depending on the type of clothing to be transported, one may be more advantageous than the other. In some cases, the best choice might even involve a hybrid combination of both configurations. Let’s take a closer look to understand their differences.


Bar System

In the case of the bar system, the GOH is loaded with rows of movable bars at flexible heights. These bars can be set up in a single or double-row configuration and spaced according to the types of clothing to be shipped. Each individual bar can support a weight \ ranging from a minimum of 300 to a maximum of 500 kg. The total number of bars can vary depending on the container’s size, the chosen configuration, and the space needed between the bars.


String System

When configured with the string system, the Garment On Hanger has a single row of horizontal bars at the top, all equidistant from each other. Ropes are tied to these bars, which are then hung vertically. These ropes are knotted (each with a minimum of eight and a maximum of twelve knots) in such a way that they can support multiple hanging garments. In this case as well, the number of bars can vary depending on the container’s size and the required space, while the number of ropes (twenty for each bar) remains constant.


Choosing between the bar and string systems

From the comparison between the two different GOH container systems, it’s clear that they have differences in terms of flexibility, configuration and available space. When choosing, the bar system is ideal for shipping heavier items such as jackets, coats and suits. The string system, on the other hand, is more suitable for transporting lightweight and thin clothing items. Often, the choice of the most suitable system is advised by the shipping company itself, which is responsible for devising effective solutions based on the needs of individual businesses. In this regard, Savino Del Bene also provides specific and tailored services for various vertical markets.



What are Airfreight GOH Pallets?

In the fast-paced realm of air transport, garments on hangers find their place within palletized systems. Air transport boasts unmatched speed and a more direct routing approach, features that make it the preferred choice for time-sensitive shipments.


There are various models of GOH pallets for air shipments, differing in size and load capacity, which vary according to the type of aircraft and the specific needs of the transport. Regardless of the individual models, however, all GOH palletization solutions offer safety and flexibility, as well as efficient space management. GOH pallets are indeed designed to fit perfectly into the fuselage of each aircraft, optimizing the available space and making loading and unloading operations faster.

The advantages of GOH freight forwarding 

Let’s see in detail what are the advantages offered by GOH freight shipments:

  • Preservation of quality: one of the primary advantages of GOH freight forwarding is the preservation of garment integrity. Unlike traditional shipping methods where garments are folded and packed tightly, GOH allows clothes to be transported on specialized hangers. This minimizes creasing, wrinkles, and damage, ensuring that your merchandise arrives at its destination in pristine condition. For the fashion industry, where presentation is everything, this can make a significant impact on customer satisfaction;
  • Faster times: time is of the essence in the fashion industry, and GOH freight forwarding can significantly reduce transit times. By eliminating the need for garments to be unpacked, steamed, and pressed upon arrival, retailers can expedite the process from warehouse to store;
  • Cost optimization: while GOH freight forwarding may seem like a premium service, it can actually be a cost-effective solution in the long run. The reduction in labor costs associated with unpacking and preparing garments for retail, coupled with the minimized risk of damaged inventory, can lead to substantial savings.



GOH warehousing: the garment sorting system

The optimal management of hanging garments is not only related to international shipping services but also concerns their sorting in terms of warehousing and logistics services. In this regard, the warehouses of Savino Del Bene feature a special Garment-on-Hanger (GOH) sorting system, which increases speed and accuracy in order processing compared to manual methods.



Sorting of garments within the warehouse: how it works

This system offers direct access to the merchandise, and its structure can be adapted to store garments on multiple levels. Specifically, hooks can be positioned on beams or tubes. Multi-level warehouses working with hanging garments implement the following transport solutions:

  • Clothes racking on wheels: carts with hangers that are then loaded onto lifts to be moved to the corresponding level;
  • Overhead conveyors: the movement of hanging garments can be automated with an overhead transport system. There are two solutions. In the first, the clothes are suspended on a cart that runs on rails mounted on the ceiling of each level. In the second, there is a towing system that automatically moves the hanging garments to the assigned level.



Garment-on-Hanger (GOH) Sorting System: what advantages does it offer

The use of this GOH system within warehouses is advantageous for operations handling large quantities of clothing, as it eliminates the need to remove garments from hangers. Specifically, this logistic solution ensures a more efficient workflow, higher productivity, simpler maintenance, reduced processing times, and greater order accuracy.





In the dynamic and competitive landscape of the fashion industry, maintaining an edge requires innovative solutions. The warehousing and transportation of Garments on Hanger (GOH) is a strategic choice for businesses looking to improve efficiency and preserve the quality of garments.

Does your company belong to this sector and are you interested in shipping and storing your goods through the most suitable Garments On Hanger solutions for you?

With a longstanding presence alongside the world’s most prestigious luxury brands, we offer flexible and competitive shipping and logistics services for the fashion industry.
