The security of shipments being exported and imported has increased over the past decade. As a result, Expedited World Cargo has stepped up to the challenge of the new TSA cargo screening regulations and has become a certified cargo screening facility. This certification is given by the Transportation Security Administration and gives our company the authority to provide it’s customers TSA cargo screening services on shipments out of U.S. airports. This translates to a more streamlined process for your company. By providing a TSA cargo screening process to our customers, EWC is able to get your shipment where it needs to go with little delay.

Why Is There A Need for a Certified Screening Facility?

In 2007, Congress passed a law requiring all shipments on passenger aircrafts to be prescreened for explosives by August 1, 2010. The certified cargo screening facility enables us to meet the 100% TSA cargo screening requirement. It gives the ability to prescreen cargo at various stages of the supply chain thus bypassing the long vetting process at the passenger air carrier at time of tender.
