The processes Known Consignor and Regulated Agent have the goal of ensuring a security chain from the manufacturer to the airline.
Therefore: Airfreight shipments from a known consignor (such as Unisto), that have undergone the required security measures, were transported by regulated agents and delivered to the airline or their handling agent at the airport, fulfil all necessary requirements of this process.
These airfreight shipments do not have to be subjected to systematic, additional security checks.
- Faster processing = no delay in delivery
- No additional inspection cost at airport
If not certified:
If a company is not validated, the airfreight shipment will have to be inspected, x-rayed and released by a suitable service provider before it can be loaded into an aeroplane.
This process signifies for the sender higher freight cost and the risk of delivery delays.
