Smiths Detection, Lufthansa Cargo and Covenant Aviation Security will provide an all-in-one TSA-approved security solution for the freight forwarding, air cargo shipping and logistics industry in the United States. This was announced today prior to the second Lufthansa Cargo Security Conference in East Meadow, NY.

The customers can benefit from the experience and expertise of three of the industry's most reputable transportation security enterprises: Lufthansa Cargo, a world-leading cargo carrier; Covenant’s specialized on-site security services; and Smiths Detection’s best-in-class, TSA-approved screening technologies including X-ray and explosives trace detection systems.

With more than 4,000 employees combined and facilities strategically located throughout the U.S., the partnership will provide both large and small freight forwarders and shippers with an array of air cargo solutions. These services, which include ground handling, security screening and equipment, warehousing, training and transportation, will enable shippers and forwarders to meet TSA screening mandates with this one-stop supply chain and air cargo security offering.

Mark Laustra, Vice President/GM of Homeland Security, Smiths Detection, said: “Smiths Detection is pleased to team with Lufthansa Cargo and Covenant to provide the best screening technology and most flexible and customizable menu of security solutions freight forwarders need to meet federal mandates. Our systems ensure fast throughput, resulting in smooth business operations while providing total and reliable screening for air cargo of all sizes.”

Klaus Holler, Vice President, the Americas, Lufthansa Cargo, said: “With ongoing regulatory developments and other challenges in the United States, security has become the cornerstone of all business processes. We're excited to team with such reputable partners to offer our clients a simplified, turn-key solution to optimize their business -- from transportation and warehouse handling to security screening and related technological services.”

Tom Long, Executive Vice President of Covenant Aviation Security, said: “As a qualified security screening services Contractor for the US Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration, we look forward to providing total security solutions for the protection of our nation’s airways, travelers and supply chain. Now shippers and forwarders have access to the end-to-end security solutions needed to meet the TSA’s mandate in a cost-effective, streamlined way.”
