Changes to our cargo screening 01/12/19

As a result of recent assessments undertaken by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), there are changes in the way regulated agents are expected to screen cargo for export by air.

Embassy Freight Services (UK) Limited : Cargo Acceptance Procedures:

  • We may be required to break down the pallet(s), crate(s) of every shipment that fails the initial x-ray screening method, to go through further security checks.
  • Dense cargo may be broken down into single layers or items if necessary to meet the new screening requirements.
  • Cargo will need to be re-packed, reassembled and rebuilt to original condition to enable us to arrange onward delivery to the airlines GHA .
  • Additional charges will apply on a job by job basis, to which we will contact you prior to proceeding with the above or charge as per our quotation.

We aim to keep any disruption to a minimum, but please allow additional time for us to be able to process your cargo in the correct way.

Embassy Freight Services (UK) Limited would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued support while we all adapt to these new changes.
