Creating security within transport chains

Legal requirements regarding security within transport chains have increased constantly over the last few years and are set to increase further in future. The US security law of 2007 can be mentioned as an example which demands the screening of all containers by customs administrations of countries of origin starting in 2012, before being transported to the USA. These demands affect the operators along the entire transport chain, from producers to forwarding agent and infrastructure operator.

Other decisive regulations and guide lines have a major impact on transport chains:

  • Electronic customs procedure system ATLAS
  • Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)
  • Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT)
  • ISPS code
