From signing up to our program to your first new customer

AEB's Partner Program is aimed at creating added value for customs brokers and AEB customers. Our 4-step onboarding process promotes this goal by developing mutually beneficial collaborations and investing resources in a smart and efficient way.

Step 1: Apply to join AEB's customs broker network

Tell us everything we should know about your customs broker services in the application form. After reviewing your information, we will share more insights into the basic concept of cooperation, our vision on digitizing customs broker services, indicative pricing, technical integration as well as contractual terms.

If we both feel that we are a good fit, we will agree in principle to become partners. You don’t need to invest in any IT integration at this stage.  And – a basic principle of our network – membership of our partner network is free of charge.

Step 2: We'll offer and promote your customs broker services

AEB will actively promote your broker services through an international marketing program and offer your services via multiple sales channels. We will identify potential customers that are interested in your services.

Step 3: We'll contact you when we identify a potential customer

Once AEB has identified a potential customer, we will discuss their requirements with you. You assess their suitability, identify the correct scope of service, and provide pricing. If the customer is ready to do business with us, we’ll move ahead with finalizing the partnership which includes IT integration, a commercial agreement, and Terms & Conditions.

Step 4: Start operations with the new joint customer

Following an initial period of testing, we'll be ready to start productive operations with our first joint customer. AEB will transfer the customer's data to you. You declare to the customs authority and invoice AEB for all declarations that you process on behalf of the customer.
