GBA surmounts German hurdles

[ February 15, 2018   //   ]

Time-critical logistics operator GBA Services’ new German devision has been approved as a carrier of secured air cargo/mail  under the country’s newly-strengthened Aviation Act which takes effect in March. Germany now imposes stricter regulations than those set by the EU, requiring that shippers, freight forwarders and hauliers working on their behalf create a security manual setting out all their procedures. Every company involved in the ground transportation of air cargo in Germany must also appoint a security manager, and provide all drivers with security training as well as conducting background checks.
