The Fix to Air Cargo Screening Delays | Cargo Screening | explosive detectionANNISTON, AL – 09/07/2018 (PRESS RELEASE)

The Cargo Screening K9 Alliance®, LLC (CSK9) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a five-year, multi-million dollar contract to support Able Freight cargo screening operations at four West Coast locations. This exclusive partnership establishes Able Freight as the pioneer in utilizing commercial and independently certified explosive detection canines in a cargo screening role. Able Freight anticipates that canine screening operations will begin in early November to coincide with full implementation of TSA’s Third Party K9-Cargo (3PK9-C) initiative.

“We are thrilled to partner with CSK9 says Able Freight’s Compliance Director, Grant Urata. The capabilities of these skilled canine teams will give us a competitive advantage, improve cargo processing time, and keep all our cargo secure. We are excited to get started with CSK9 later this year.”

The introduction of 3PK9-C certified CSK9 Teams as a primary screening method will allow Able Freight to shorten cargo processing times, increase cargo throughput, and lower screening and freight handling costs. Able Freight expects that leveraging these efficiencies will help to increase revenues and maximize profits.

Paul Hammond, CSK9 President, had this to say, “The implementation of third party K9 screening is going to massively change the industry for the better. We are proud of the alliance we have built across the country to offer full national coverage to our clients. Whether you have facilities in Atlanta or Seattle, we have you covered.”
