Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal has become the first Hong Kong based air cargo facility to achieve certification of ISO 28000, a global security standard specifying the requirements for a security management system in the logistics industry. 

CPSL chief executive officer Kelvin Ko said: “Customers paying premiums for airfreight expect their goods to arrive at the destination on time and in excellent condition. Maintaining the integrity of the supply chain – keeping shipments safe and secure from end-to-end, is perhaps one of the biggest challenges for the industry today. 

As an air cargo terminal operator that handles thousands of tonnes of cargo every day, we need to ensure the shipments are not tampered with during the entire handling process in the terminal. A comprehensive security management system has to be in place to turn management commitment on security into actions.

“CPSL is proud to be a pioneer in this field. We trust our customers will see the difference in the level of security that we are offering.” Ko added.

The on-site assessment and audit were carried out by LR Management Systems (LRQA) in the last quarter of 2014 with no adverse or non-compliance findings identified.

“This achievement not only underlines CPSL’s commitment to leading air cargo security in the global industry, but also recognises its continuous enhancement of its services,” said Simon Batters, global head of strategic marketing of LR Management Systems 
(LRQA).
