Due to the residual effects of 9/11, Homeland Security implemented the Commission Act of 2007 which states that 50% screening of cargo was achieved in 2009. Legislation is mandating that by August 2010, 100% of air freight cargo that is transported by a passenger carrier has been screened before departure. Although most of the responsibility for screening lies on TSA (Transportation Security Administration), the federal agency is encouraging freight forwarders and other vendors to handle the screening thru Certified Cargo Screening Facility program. TSA is trying it’s best to prevent the exportation of weapons of mass destruction and other prohibited items. The federal agency will help to certify private sector companies to screen air freight shipments. Manufacturers, warehouses, distribution centers, third party logistics providers etc will have the opportunity to become a certified cargo screening facility (CCSF) upon completion of all requirements under the CCSF program.This will eliminate the long delays at the airlines who will not have the capability of screening all piece count cargo received. Currently TSA has 308 screening facilities available.
