The security rules were issued following the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. These rules are intended to ensure that only safely classified cargo is loaded into the aircraft. Unauthorized access by third parties can thus be prevented and a security-tested supply chain can be created.
If the air cargo is not to be inspected by a third party, the shipper must have an official approval as a known consignor. Companies that want to certify a business location in Germany as an officially known consignor must submit a safety program. For this our security tapes and labels find optimal application possibilities. Pallets, boxes and packages can be quickly and easily secured with these tools - manipulation or unauthorized access is avoided.
The content of the company-specific safety program is provided by the Federal Aviation Office on its website.
The Known Consignor is a company that must comply with certain safety regulations when shipping by air. Before air cargo can be loaded onto an aircraft, accurate and defined security checks must be carried out. These checks are carried out and documented by a known consignor and a regulated agent (forwarder).
The check-in process for the known consignor is thereby simplified and accelerated considerably. from shipping to loading into the airliner, no further checks are required. The supply chain is thus ensured and all legal requirements and regulations have been complied with.
- Smooth processing = no delays
- no additional inspection or monitoring costs at the airport
