All shipments are subject to Security handling and a commensurate Security surcharge. It is important to meet government regulated Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requirements as to who has authorized access to aircraft and cargo at an active airport operation. It is also important to ensure that your very important shipment is Secure at all times from the elements of theft, damage or other unknown, unauthorized persons.
You may be aware that couriers have been operating in accordance with Part 108 of the Airline Security Regulations since mid-2009. Amongst other measures, it involves a screening and handling process that all cargo must undergo with each and every airline before carriage of such goods can take place. Implementing and maintaining the required security measures that this additional regulation demanded, resulted in huge financial injections in the courier and freight industries globally. A security surcharge was introduced in the industry to offset these costs.
