Secured air cargo haulage
GBA Logistics Germany GmbH is now fully approved by the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA - Federal Aviation Office) for the carriage of secured air cargo and mail (Bescheid über die Zulassung als Transporteur sicherer Luftfracht / - post), under the newly-strengthened German Aviation Act which is effective from March 2018. These new regulations take the place of the previously-accepted haulier declaration.
The German Aviation Act now imposes stricter regulations than those set by the EU: requiring shippers, freight forwarders, and hauliers working on their behalf to maintain a security manual setting out all their procedures. They must also appoint a security manager, provide all drivers with security training, and conduct driver background checks.
As a Registered Haulier (“zugelassener Transporteur“), GBA Logistics Germany GmbH is now approved for the ground transportation of all air cargo that is secured, working for known consignors and regulated agents.
GBA has its own approved, full-time internal trainer and avsec expert, who is an accredited LBA Instructor. In addition, our large fleet of vehicles in Germany are all TAPA II compliant - with electronic locks and seals, anti-hijack devices and GPS tracking.
As one of a restricted number of approved hauliers, GBA enables you to comply fully with the new regulations, maintains the security of your supply chain . . . and saves you time, inconvenience and money on all your urgent airfreight shipments.
