UPS believes it will have no difficulty in achieving compliance with the latest cargo screening requirements following a review of security protocols in the wake of the Yemen bomb plot.
In statement, it said it had reviewed its security protocols with authorities involved, both in the US and internationally, after suspicious packages were found in its cargo networks.
It pointed out that as a freight forwarder, it already participated in the US Transport Security Administration’s certified cargo screening programme which requires the company to meet security standards to tender cargo to passenger airlines.
Chairman and chief executive Scott Davis said: “Our commitment to detailed security review won’t deter the UPS priority for safety and service, even with the demands of a holiday peak season.”
