MSA Security, DHL Global Forwarding partner to provide explosive detection canines for air cargo screening

MSA Security (MSA), a threat protection firm, has announced it has partnered with DHL Global Forwarding (DGF) to deliver explosive detection canine screening of air cargo, the company said.

The partnership grew from a small pilot program in 2016, anticipating the Transportation Security Administration´s (TSA) Third-Party Canine (3PK9) Program, and is now in its third year.

With approximately 80 million cargo tons shipped annually, the aviation industry faces significant and evolving explosive threats. The TSA, cargo carriers and private sector security firms are working together to effectively and efficiently ensure public safety. MSA is actively engaged in this effort, deploying over 100 explosive detection canine teams, known as Windsor Teams, to screen cargo for various clients. The partnership between MSA and DGF was one of the first of its kind, providing valuable insight and lessons learned.
