New Applicant Endorsement

The CNS Cargo Agency and Authorized Intermediary Agreement establishes an efficient process that ensures a comprehensive screening of all applicants. This process goes far beyond the regulation of secondary details and professionalizes the essence of the air cargo partnership. The technology advancements and new demands for performance, reliability, safety and security, have raised the sophisticated requirements of these essential industry professionals.

Given the vital role they play, some control points must be in place:

  1. Certification of those who seek to perform the role of the agent, forwarder, or intermediary professional
  2. Oversight that ensures that those who have been certified continue to meet standards of professional competence
  3. Access to training that is credible, efficient and cost effective so that it supports the evolving standards of professionalism in a changing industry
