Cathay Pacific Cargo DHL Global Forwarding Electronic Security Declaration security


DHL Global Forwarding and Cathay Pacific Cargo have announced they will partner to drive the implementation and adoption of the Electronic Security Declaration (ESD) in the UK freight market. The data will be sent electronically, replacing the current paper Consignment Security Certificate that is used to provide confirmation that all security requirements are met before uplifting air cargo. The ESD speeds up the whole process and provides confirmation to the security approved air cargo agent or airline that all the security requirements have been met. It certifies that the cargo has been prepared and held in a secure environment, does not contain any prohibited articles and has not been interfered with.
