DHL Express Kenya attains EU security validation

DHLNAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 19 – DHL Express Kenya has been validated as a RA3 (Regulated Agent Operating from a 3rd Country) under the new European Union security regulation EU859.

The European Union Commission reviewed its aviation security legislation and in August 2011, new regulations were adopted for the security of air cargo and mail that is flown into any European Union Airport including air cargo and mail that is for transfer or transit.

The new regulations, applicable since February 2012, require all air carriers flying cargo and mail into the EU from non-EU countries to ensure that certain standards for security are met prior to the loading of an aircraft bound for the European Union and also be designated as an “Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the Union from a Third Country Airport” (ACC3).

As a result, DHL Express ensured that multiple stations across different regions were validated as RA3 so as to guarantee delivery of all shipments to the European Union.

“The validation is yet another vote of confidence in our services. We are delighted to be recognized as a RA3 so that we can ensure the uninterrupted flow of DHL Express customers’ shipments into or via the EU and to maintain the safety and security of DHL Express staff and operations.” said Alan Cassels, DHL Express, Country Manager, Kenya.

The validation recognizes the company’s advanced security systems and measures for cargo in transit within its network. The security and protection of goods is a major concern and priority to customers shipping internationally, as well as to the express and logistics industry as a whole.
