Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) has launched a dedicated inspection counter for ‘Dangerous Goods & Lithium Batteries’ shipments, effective from May 2015. With the increasing global concern and heightened aviation security in the industry, this dedicated counter service will further enhance the customer services level and facilitate the checking of dangerous goods & lithium batteries.
The dedicated inspection counter is conveniently located at 2nd floor of AAT Terminal 2. Now, customers and cargo agents can go directly to this dedicated counter where they will be attended to by well trained and experienced staff to perform Dangerous Goods (DG) / Lithium Batteries (LB) checking and physical cargo acceptance. Moreover, dedicated parking lots for trucks are properly arranged at 2nd floor for better service facilitation. The overall process of cargo checking/ acceptance is streamlined for achieving higher operational efficiency and time-saving benefits. The security level for DG/LB cargo acceptance has also been further enhanced as both physical and document checks are performed at a single location now.
Khaw Hock Eng, general manager of AAT, said, “AAT remains in the forefront to innovate and introduce new services and facilitations to the air cargo industry. This dedicated inspection counter for ‘Dangerous Goods and Lithium Batteries’ together with an advance booking service are important services in response to the increasing global security concern and air logistics needs.”
