LimitLess International obtains approval as a CCSF

By: | at 08:00 PM | Transport Intermediaries  

LimitLess International, Inc., a provider of international air and sea freight services with expertise in documentation, customs clearance, insurance, packing and storage, received approval as a Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF) by the United States Department of Homeland Security Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Approval as a CCSF is a part of the TSAs Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP). This is a voluntary program designed to enable certain vetted, validated, and certified facilities to screen cargo prior to delivering the cargo to the air carrier. According to the TSA Web site, facilities that successfully complete the TSA certification process, to include an onsite assessment of the facility, will be designated as a Certified Cargo Screening Facility. CCSFs must adhere to TSA mandated security standards, including the employment of secure chain of custody methods to establish and maintain the security of screened cargo throughout the supply chain. TSA will only certify those facilities that demonstrate adherence to these requirements through the TSA certification process. Cheryl Stockstad, president and CEO of LimitLess International, Inc., upon receiving approval from TSA said, ‘We recognize that it is a congressional mandate to screen 100% of cargo transported on passenger aircraft by August 2010. TSA began the CCSP to assist in meeting this directive and at LimitLess we’re willing to do our part to make this a reality. We worked very hard to meet TSA’s stringent requirements and are very proud to have received this approval.’
