MSA has attended the AirCargo conference for the last several years. Initially as attendees, we were a significantly smaller company with about 800 employees and 200 Windsor Teams. This year, with over 1,300 employees and more than 600 Windsor Teams, MSA will host exhibit Booth 104 and our Air Cargo and Aviation Director Marc Murphy* will participate as a panel speaker focusing on the third-party screening program.
MSA is currently the only company exhibiting at the conference with CCSF-K9 certification AND DHS SAFETY Act certification. To date, more than 30 of our Windsor Teams are Certified 3PK9-C Teams throughout the U.S. MSA opened four new offices and ATF-licensed canine training facilities last year in Hong Kong, China; San Diego, CA; Memphis, TN; and Orangeburg, NY. We anticipate opening an additional three regional training centers in 2019 to keep up with escalating market demand our Windsor Teams and the continued roll out of TSA's Third Party Canine Program for cargo screening.
To best comply with all critical record keeping and maintenance aspects of the third-party canine screening program, MSA recently partnered with a technology provider to allow for reliable, cloud-based and redundant storage of all transfer documentation and video. This automated capability helps eliminate the error-prone method of manual record keeping via pen and paper.
Our new site locations, increased Windsor Team roster and new support partnerships are just a few of the many developments that will continue to enhance the quality of service to our air cargo clients throughout the nation and across the globe.
If you are attending AirCargo next week, be sure to check out Marc’s panel discussion on Monday, 2/10, TSA / Government / 3rd Party Screening K9 Program (SSI Only) from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm PST and be sure to visit our booth 104 to meet Windsor Team Jaime and Harvey!
