An important component of AVE’s work is the provision of service to our members. We offer AVE companies concrete and effective support at all levels – from solving practical problems with customs difficulties and legal assistance through to policy advice.

Thanks to our large network, we are constantly aware of what is happening. AVE provides its members with timely, regular and comprehensive information on the latest developments in external economic affairs. In our AVE circular, we highlight and explain all relevant developments for our members. In this way, we enable companies to adapt to changes optimally and in good time.

When its members have specific problems with external economic matters, AVE can often make a decisive difference with specialist knowledge, experience and good contacts. Preventive advice on all issues linked to customs clearance also forms part of our service offer alongside support on external economic issues. We also provide individual support in cases of conflict through intervention with authorities or political decision-makers.

“AVE supports us through regular information on recent and upcoming changes to customs and foreign trade law. We particularly appreciate well-informed exchanges with our opposite numbers in other member firms.”
