The FTA Comments On Air Cargo Security

Freight Transport Association : 02 November, 2010  (Company News)
International air freight comes under the spotlight after security alert according to the Freight Transport Association
In the wake of Friday's aviation security alert, the Freight Transport Association (FTA) has commented on the security regime for international air cargo shipments.

FTA's Head of Global Supply Chain Policy, Christopher Snelling, said: "Logistics companies operate complex and stringent security measures for all air cargo. These measures have been developed in close partnership with security authorities in all countries. These are intelligent measures which constantly evolve to meet threats as they emerge and are anticipated."

"The air cargo industry has obviously been aware for many years of the potential for terrorists to attempt to use or attack freight-only flights, and has worked assiduously with law enforcement and security agencies to provide a security regime that will prevent this from happening. Of necessity this all happens away from the public gaze."

Snelling added: "It is not yet fully clear what the nature of these recent events are, and what this might mean for aviation security. Speculation at this stage is not helpful. As the full details become known the industry will, as always, work with UK and other authorities to determine what lessons can be learned for the future of aviation security."
