Comparison of the screening amount
Actual 2012
Expected 2013
Freight of known shipper
Screened freight
95 % of all airfreight shipments are
not subjected to a screening as
the majority of the shippers has
signed a security declaration
before April 2010
Freight of known shipper
Screened freight
Approx. 80% of all airfreight
shipments would be subjected to a
screening as a small amount of
shippers are certified
European countries concerned
The new EU regulation results in differential effects in April 2013 within the
European DACHSER-countries
Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal
and Slovakia will have an high increasing part of
unsecured freight
Denmark, Poland and Czech Republik currently
have an 100% screening which will partially
decrease because of the implementation of the
secured supply chain
Great Britain, France and Switzerland already
have an official approval of the shippers =>
therefore no change

Once known consignor – always known consignor?
A known consignor shall be re-validated at
regular intervals not exceeding 5 years. This shall
include an on-site verification in order to assess
whether the known consignor still complies with
the requirements.
The validity time for a known consignor is
different in each European country, varying
between one and five years validity.
EU Database
Each certified known shipper is entered in an European database and valid
for all freight forwarders within Europe. Each site from the shipper is entered
separately with an ID code for each individual site.
At least the pick-up address, depending on the country, needs to be the
known shipper.
The database is only accessible for
security awareness trained staff with a
personalized user and password
