The Accredited Air Cargo Agent (AACA) Scheme extends the existing Regulated Air Cargo Agent (RACA) Scheme to cover smaller operators with less complex business operations, such as couriers and contract drivers. Both Schemes apply to cargo to be carried on an aircraft from anywhere in Australia.
The Australian Government has introduced security measures that require air cargo to be security cleared before it can be loaded on an aircraft. These measures place specific requirements on businesses that security clear, handle or make arrangements for the transport of international and domestic air cargo.
Freight Councils operate within each State of Australia and collectively are known as the Australian Freight Councils Network (AFCN). They are jointly funded by Australian and State Governments with support from the Australian Logistics Industry. These Councils bring together all players of the freight logistics chains to improve the efficiency and quality of the transport and logistics supply chains.
The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) is a partnership between Australian Governments and senior leaders in the logistics field including logistics users, suppliers, peak bodies and academics.
Businesses that security clear, handle or make arrangements for the transport of international and domestic air cargo that has been security cleared must be a Regulated Air Cargo Agent (RACA).
