Freight forwarders who have registered as a Registered Air Cargo Agent (RACA) have an important responsibility in ensuring safety across the air cargo supply chain.
If you are a RACA, what steps have you taken to ensure that there will be no tampering or pilferage of the cargo before uplifting international outbound air cargo which has been examined onto an aircraft?
Tamper Evident Security Seals can be used to secure ULDs. Depending on the value of the cargo, you can choose either a simple plastic indicative seal (which can be easily applied and removed by hand) or use a wire cable seal, which is designed to provide greater security as it can only be removed with a wire cutter.
ULDs with loose carton boxes can be secured with tamper evident security tapes and labels.
Seals HQ is a specialist provider of tamper evident products and solutions. With our wide range of cost effective products, RACA Freight Forwarders can now apply best practices to ensure maximum security for your packaging.
Contact Seals HQ using one of the methods below to discuss how we can help you effectively secure your packaging:
The Australian Government recently launched an initiative called the Known Consignor scheme. The Known Consignor Scheme is for businesses that manufactures and assembles goods to be transported by aircraft as cargo. The Known Consignor scheme has been introduced to streamline the way goods are cleared through Australian borders. Instead of using a Regulated Air Cargo Agent (RACA), the scheme offers businesses an alternative way to meet air cargo security requirements. As a Known Consignor, any international outbound cargo shipped will not require further examination before uplift onto an aircraft.
Known Consignors must be able to meet and maintain a high level of security to ensure cargo is safe to load onto an aircraft. Known Consignors must demonstrate that they have implemented security measures and procedures and can secure their cargo from where it originates until it is handed to another regulated business.
A new initiative has been recently announced whereby beginning 1 March 2019, before outbound international air cargo is uplifted onto an aircraft, it must be examined at piece-level by a RACA under an EACE notice or originate from a Known Consignor.
If you regularly export your products, it would be time consuming and costly to have your consignment checked at piece-level by a RACA. If you have applied and been approved as a Known Consignor, one of the requirements is that you must protect the security of air cargo that originates from your business until the air cargo is provided to another regulated business.
This is where Seals HQ comes in. As a Tamper Evident security specialist, Seals HQ has a wide range of products and solutions that can help you fulfil your Known Consignor obligations.
Our Security Tapes and Labels are designed to leave clear visual evidence when triggered. The tapes and labels are designed to be robust and eliminate accidental triggering via movement, but sensitive enough to leave a tell-tale sign when the packaging has been tampered with. Our tapes and labels are designed to work on both porous and non-porous surfaces, making it ideal for applications on carton boxes, plastic crates, pallet wrapping and many more.
Our tapes can be supplied either in a continuous roll of 50 meters, or in a roll of 45 meters with perforated sections of 150mm.
Large volume users also have the option to customise the tapes and labels to include a custom VOID message, custom size and artwork.
