History of the company

Customs Clearance and Shipping

Beagans Limited is a leading customs clearance broker that has been serving the needs of businesses in Ireland since 1953. Originally founded in Dundalk, Co. Louth, our company has grown significantly over the years.

At Beagans Limited, we understand the importance of staying ahead of the curve in the fast-paced world of international trade. That’s why we restructured our business in 1993 to cope with the changes brought about by Ireland’s entry into the EU single market. This allowed us to expand our services and expertise while continuing to provide the high-quality customs clearance services that our clients have come to rely on.

Today, we are proud to be one of the most respected customs clearance brokers in Ireland, with a track record of success that spans more than 60 years. We are committed to providing our clients with the very best service, using the latest technology and software to ensure that their customs clearance needs are met quickly and efficiently.

Our team of experienced professionals has a deep understanding of Irish and EU customs regulations, and we work closely with our clients to ensure that they are in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, accuracy, and efficiency, and are dedicated to providing our clients with a seamless and stress-free customs clearance experience.

At Beagans Limited, we believe that our success is built on our commitment to excellence, our dedication to our clients, and our unwavering focus on providing the best possible service. If you’re looking for a customs clearance agent that you can trust, look no further than Beagans Limited.

AEO stands for Authorised Economic Operator, which is a certification granted by customs authorities in the European Union to businesses that meet certain criteria related to their customs compliance and security measures. AEO status is designed to streamline customs procedures and provide benefits such as faster clearance times, reduced inspection rates, and improved supply chain security. Businesses that hold AEO status are considered low-risk and are therefore subject to fewer customs controls, making it easier and more efficient for them to trade internationally.

Some of the benefits of dealing with an AEO accredited company are,

  • Customs Clearance Experts
  • Easier admittance to customs simplifications as defined in the UCC.
  • Fewer physical and documentary-based controls.
