Cargo Screening (CSS)

Regulations (part 108) stipulate that "unknown" cargo must be screened before being transported. Almost 40 per cent of all cargo that does not meet the requirements of the regulated agent must be subjected to a screening process. In 2014, the EU approved ACC3 standard with which countries transporting cargo into and over EU states must comply. South Africa was given green status, which indicates that it complies with EU standards.

ACS's decision to become involved in cargo screening was driven by the knowledge that is track record of high quality, baggage screening services would stand it in good stead and to take advantage of a strategic opportunity to entrench it's market positioning. However, in reality the uptake of ACS's offering has been disappointing and it's business model unviable. The environment has proved to be more competitive than initially anticipated and volumes lower than expected. In response, has renegotiated it's contract with AFS to a "per kilo" basis to address the financial viability of the service.

All cargo transported by air must undergo a security check before being loaded on any aircraft. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Regulations (Part 108) stipulate that “unknown” cargo must be screened before being transported. Almost 40% of all cargo that does not meet the requirements of the regulated agent must be subjected to a screening process.
