Freightnet Handling are a GB/RA (Great British Regulated Agent) licensed to screen cargo for export from the UK by air. We also offer Aviation Security Consultancy to third parties to help them gain, then maintain compliance in this area.  I am appointed as the Directed Party for World Courier and my role is to ensure that we maintain compliance but also to assist in legislation and operational issues that fall under my remit                                                             

Prior to working for Freightnet Handling I was a Department for Transport (DfT) Aviation Security Compliance Inspector and qualified as a subject matter expert in UK and European Aviation Security Legislation.  During my time with the DfT I became the Lead Inspector for X Ray Screening, Overt and Covert X Ray Screening Testing, Free Running Explosive Detection Dogs and Fine Art Screening.  I was also the UK’s Lead Inspector for the events of 25th December 2009 (The attempted attack on Flight 253 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (the ‘Underpants Bomber’) and the event on 29th October 2010 (The UPS Printer Cartridge Bomb).                                                             

On leaving the DfT I joined Freightnet Handling as the Security Manager and in May 2016 I was promoted to Compliance Director.  I maintain an active role within the Aviation Security Industry providing Aviation Security Training to EC/DfT standards to a range of companies and also provide bespoke training courses for new CAA Auditors, DfT Aviation Security Liaison Officers and SO15 Aviation Security Police Officers based at Heathrow & SO19’s Counter Terrorist Officers.
