CSL Internationale Spedition Sp. z o.o. has received the Gazela Biznesu prize in the 10th edition of the annual contest for the most dynamic developing companies. Puls Biznesu, a Polish business monthly, has just confirmed our company’s participation in the 10th edition of the contest held by the elitarian Gazele Biznesu club (Gazelle of Business Club) which gathers the most dynamically developing Polish companies.
The aim of the ranking is to select the most dynamic companies which commenced their business activity before the year 2006. The ranking is governed by a strict set of rules: to be considered in the ranking, the companies could not have made any loss, must have reached the sales level of minimum PLN 3 million, yet not more than PLN 200 million, and, moreover, the volume of sales must have increased in the years 2006-2008 and relevant information must have been made available to the Puls Biznesu monthly. The crucial criterion is the increase in turnover, expressed in percentage, achieved over the last three years. Gazela Biznesu ranking has one more distinct feature: it is known for its flawless reputation and transparency.

Szczecin-based company CSL has been granted a prestigious European certificate AEO.
AEO certificate, granted by the Customs Chamber to freight forwarders, importers and exporters, certifies that the company awarded the certificate is a reliable operator applying transparent procedures and dedicated to safety and security. The AEO certificate is valid throughout the European Union.
The AEO status entitles the operator to benefit from simplifications in the customs procedures and facilitation with regard to customs controls – the company is subject to fewer physical inspections and documentation controls and, in the case its consignment is selected for control, it will get a priority treatment. 'We can benefit, for example, from deferred customs fees and co-operation with a customs office is more partner-like', explains Laura Hołowacz. 'This certificate enables us to offer to our customers a much wider range of services. They may also feel confident that the employee handling their consignment is a true professional', says Laura Hołowacz, director of CSL Internationale Spedition.
It is not easy to get the certificate. First of all, the company must go through a three-year-long audit carried out by the Customs Office. It includes i.e. the procedures applied in the company, the way business records are kept, the company’s financial condition, the data protection and security procedures. An important factor affecting the receipt of the certificate is the company’s solvency. It is not easy to receive the certificate, which is why all CSL company’s departments had to be involved in the process. ‘Urszula Rogula, the AEO Project Manager, Andrzej Sulawiak, IT Manager, Mieczysław Góralski, Head of Customs Agency and Marketing, Zbigniew Baszanowski, legal adviser and the whole CSL team – they made our success in attaining the certificate possible’, says the company’s director.
