Let’s take a look at air freight security - 01/04/2014

Sécurisation du fret

Since the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001, air freight has been particularly exposed to security risks linked to international terrorism (Booby-trapped printers in October 2010, attempted air attack in the United States in May 2012, cocaine traffic at Roissy on 11/09/2013, etc.).

Air freight security is a key component of the security system. It’s based on the reliability of everyone involved in the export process: the exporting shipper, the airline, the handling agent, the pre-carriage road transporter and the international transport organiser. We talk about upstream freight security when it takes place on the exporter’s premises and downstream security when it takes place at the airport, on the premises of the transport organiser or the handling agent representing the airline. Security often involves the use of an X-Ray machine, but also, depending on the type of goods, a brigade of dog handlers, air sampling or a decompression chamber.


Centrimex has Accredited Air Agent status issued by the DGAC (French Civil Aviation Authority). Centrimex’ air freight experts, under the supervision of Jacques Boulonnois, are available to help Centrimex clients gain a clearer understanding of the issues and challenges of air freight security.

Centrimex Freight forwarders

The countries of the South, as we habitually call those of the Old Continent, no longer need to show their dynamism or answer to a system that has, for many years, ignored and snubbed them. Accompanying the growth of south-South flows, and particularly those that aim to supply the African continent, is a major challenge for an organisation such as Centrimex.

It’s also a genetic evolution for the company, which has to adapt to new conditions in terms of geographical location and management of flows, market players, languages and cultures. It’s this type of challenge that makes a company and the men and women who work in it even stronger.
