“This report addresses the effectiveness of the Transport. Security Admin’s. (TSA) efforts to secure air cargo while it is handled or transported on the ground, prior to being shipped on passenger aircraft. Conclusions: Personnel were accessing, handling, or transporting air cargo without the required background checks or training. Also, 23% of drivers did not satisfy the required training and testing requirements. Automated tools to assist inspectors in analyzing results and focusing on high-risk areas in air cargo security were not adequate. As a result, air cargo is vulnerable to the introduction of explosives and other destructive items before it is loaded onto planes. The report makes six recommendations to strengthen the security of air cargo during ground transportation.”
