C.H. Robinson opens 2nd air freight screening facility

To better support air service in the Los Angeles area, reduce delays for customers, and improve tracking capabilities, C.H. Robinson has opened a new state of the art certified cargo screening facility (CCSF) in Carson, CA., the company said.

This is the second CCSF operated by C.H. Robinson. The first facility opened on April 18, 2012, in Chicago, IL.

C.H. Robinson´s in-house screening facility includes approximately 20,000 square feet of warehouse space, state of the art screening machines, and a dedicated air freight team to screen air freight that moves through the facility. The facility is tied directly to Navisphere®, the company´s global technology platform, allowing customers to track their freight before, during, and after the CCSF. This adds a level of visibility that is often missing during the screening process.

Founded in 1905, C.H. Robinson is a global provider of multimodal logistics services, fresh produce sourcing, and information services to 46,000 customers through a network of more than 280 offices and over 13,000 employees around the world. The company works with 66,000 transportation providers worldwide. It had annual revenues of USD13.4 billion in 2014.
