TSA Scraps December Deadline for Screening Non-U.S. Cargo
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration said that it will no longer require all air cargo bound for the U.S. to be screened by the end of the year.
The TSA told the Airforwarders Association of the change this week and didn’t set a new deadline, says a Business Week report.
TSA is working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the air cargo industry on a pilot program to process information about cargo and shippers before packages are sent to the U.S., the report said.
The agency continues to require screening of all cargo on flights departing U.S. airports and all “high-risk” deliveries coming into the U.S.
