Air Cargo Exports Process Expedited with New Technology in Perth
Air cargo exports are now being processed faster and more efficiently following the investment of new screening technology for Tigers Australia Perth facility. This technology enables the company to perform export screenings internally, making the location the only one in Australia with internal screening capabilities. Tigers is a global organization that specializes in technology enabled supply chain solutions. Based in Hong Kong, the company has international locations including Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney.
The Perth location will continue staying one step ahead through Regulated Air Cargo Agent accreditation before the March 1 national date for the introduction of new policies for conducting air cargo inspections.
“Tigers Australia has purchased the equipment to support our customer base with the new legal requirements, which will impact all air cargo export commodities,” said Jason Radford, General Manager, Tigers Perth. “At the Perth facility, we operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so we will also offer the service to the entire Perth airfreight market.
“This will allow export cargo screening to be completed after-hours, therefore reducing the need for customers to deliver directly to the Cargo Terminal Operator (CTO) where wait times can be in excess of six hours. The investment in this equipment will ensure that Tigers Perth remains efficient and will be fully compliant with the Australian government’s air cargo security legislation in time for the implementation date.”
Additional features of the new technology include state-of-the-art X-ray equipment, two explosive trace detection units, and an electro-magnetic detection (EMD) machine.
