Study highlights air cargo security failings – News – Logistics Manager

There are considerable security shortcomings in air freight transport, despite newly drafted and tighter EU regulations which close the gaps in control, according to a new study of the International Transfer Centre for Logistics and the Technische Universität of Berlin.

The study, which was commissioned by World Cargo Centre in Frankfurt, warns that “these weak spots increase the security risk of worldwide transport, which can result in the disruption of logistical processes with considerable economic losses”.
