On January 11, 2010, I posted “You Ready for 100% Cargo Screening by the TSA” because at that time, the international aviation industry was not prepared for the implementation on August 1, 2010 of the TSA mandated 100% screening of air cargo aboard passenger planes. The date is fast approaching, and shippers, indirect air carriers (freight forwarders) and airlines which need to get “on board” should attend an upcoming seminar.
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals South Florida Roundtable is hosting an excellent, informative seminar the morning of Friday, May 7, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Presenters includes the Assistant Branch Chief of TSA from its Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, and knowledgeable professionals who have already led the changes at American Airlines, DHL, and others. The seminar will focus on the practical steps that shippers, IACs, and air carriers must know, including how to comply with TSA’s Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) and become a Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF). Registration for the seminar may easily be done on-line.
