Any air freight specialist aspires to have a full IATA licence, in part because this allows the freight forwarder to deal with every airline unhindered and gain both access to their preferential rates and airline recognition, also in part for the cudos of the highly sought after IATA Cargo Agent status.
Full IATA membership requires 2 or more staff to be dangerous goods qualified to IATA standard. This is the most highly regulated area of transporting dangerous goods, especially when it comes to handling & moving dangerous goods on passenger aircraft.
EFS has 3 IATA qualified dangerous goods staff on hand at our operations hub in Farnborough. Fully hazardous aware, especially in relation to new areas of concern to airlines like Lithium Ion batteries in shipments.
We are please to confirm that 2 team members have completed their 2 year refresher revalidation course, 2 and a half days intensive updating and refreshing.

- EFS exports landing gear for a C-130 Hercules
EFS has recently shipped a C130 Hercules nose landing gear under tight time constraints to Montreal airport. Due to the height of the packed cargo it required a freighter aircraft solution as well as additional screening being too big to fit a conventional xray machine. The customs entry required compliance to an export licence.
