C.H. Robinson opens California cargo screening facility

C.H. RobinsonLogisitics firm C.H. Robinson opened a new certified cargo screening facility in Carson, Calif., which is convenient to both Los Angeles International Airport and the Port of Long Beach. This is the second TSA-certified cargo screening facility for C.H. Robinson, which already opened one in Chicago in April 2012.

The facility includes 20,000 square feet of warehouse space, along with scanning machines and a team tasked with screening airfreight that is brought to the facility. The company’s technology platform, Navisphere, allows customers to track their freight before, during and after it has passed through the facility.

For the facility to become certified by the TSA, C.H. Robinson had to complete a rigorous certification process that included developing and sharing the facility’s procedures, protocols, policies and other data, as well as a two-day site visit by the agency with a walk-through and interviews with key personnel.

“Rather than relying on a third party to perform the required screening on their schedule, now we can assure our customers that our trained experts are reviewing their shipments,” said Tim Reiff, general manager, North America airfreight, for C.H. Robinison.
