From signing-up for our program to your first new customer in 4 steps

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

Step 1: Apply for AEB's customs broker network

Tell us everything we should know about your customs broker services by filling in the application form. Your information will be carefully reviewed. During this process, 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. This will allow everyone to understand what we can bring to the table. If we both feel that we are a good fit, then we 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 in detail with you. You assess their suitability, identify the correct scope of service, and then provide pricing. If the customer is ready to move ahead with the service, then we’ll move ahead with finalization of 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’re ready to start productive operations with our first joint customer. AEB transfers 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.
