4 Strategies for keeping air cargo safe

AMG Logistics

Here are some suggestions for ensuring the safety of your air cargo during large freight shipments:

  1. Employ a layered approach

    The efficacy of layering security techniques is increased. Combining diverse tools, such as security seals and tamper-evident tape, can help you do this. It might also imply ensuring security at various locations. For air freight, this may include securing the aeroplane door, cargo container, and individual parts independently for better overall performance.

  2. Use digital tracking and barcodes

    The theft of cargo is getting increasingly sophisticated. People will even go so far as to create phoney shipping records or infiltrate shipment plans early on. It’s harder to fabricate records or steal information when you use barcode tracking and digital recordkeeping.

  3. Utilize seals that are tamper-evident

    Theft is deterred by tamper-evident seals because potential thieves are unable to break into the cargo without leaving visible proof. Padlock seals, bolt seals, pull-tight seals, and other tamper-evident seals are employed in air transportation.

  4. Processes should be audited and analysed for possible threats

    Go over the entire shipping procedure from beginning to end. Determine what security concerns are there at each phase and where extra precautions are required. To remain on top of any security problems, revisit this strategy whenever a process changes. At all stages, properly train team members on security measures.
