IATA approval is issued to freight agents who act as intermediaries between shippers and airlines, under certain conditions.
This approval provides access to tools that simplify our mission.
In return, the IATA agent undertakes to comply with certain regulatory procedures, in particular with regard to packaging and labeling of packages.
A IATA agent appears on the official lists published by the international association and this approval authorizes him, for example, to join the CASS system of connection with the airlines, to collect commissions directly from the companies at no additional cost to the shipper.
