As you know, TIACA fully supports the United States’ Transportation Security Administration (TSA) mandate on attaining 100-percent screening of air cargo transported on passenger aircraft, both within and into the United States.

However, the requirement to report monthly air cargo screening statistics remains in place, over 9 months after the December 3, 2012 deadline. This reporting requirement continues to place an unnecessary burden on the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) shippers and Indirect Air Carriers (IAC’s) in the U.S., as well as on all passenger airlines for cargo transported within and into the U.S.
