About us

We specialize in aviation security screening and primarily perform freight screening at the Munich Airport.

The special security requirements of the aviation industry and the constant danger posed by terrorism demand a high level of professionalism and responsibility on the part of airlines and their supporting security companies.

In air cargo and freight, potential dangers are posed by explosive and flammable substances and by hazardous goods in the freight. The aviation industry has been and always is a target of terrorists around the world who know how hard continuous monitoring of freight goods is - unlike the tight controls which have been put in place in the meantime for passenger flights.

The supposed "freight security hole" has to be countered with material and personnel deployments. Corresponding laws and directives for airlines, freight carriers, and logistics companies have been put into place over the past few years.

Our Service Offering

§9 Luftsicherheitsgesetz (Aviation Security Act)

​An airline is obligated to provide protection against attacks in order to ensure air traffic safety. Among other things, it must implement security measures in the handling of mail, baggage, freight, and provisions, secure areas against unauthorized access, train security personnel, and secure aircraft.

Our service offering focuses on the screening, searching, and protection of freight according to §9 LuftSiG (Aviation Security Act). In addition, we also have know-how in the area of radiation protection.

Our goal is to offer reliable, continuous and high quality security services to freight dispatchers and agencies.

Significance of the Munich Airport

​The Munich Airport is number four of the German air freight hubs, after Frankfurt, Köln/Bonn and Leipzig. It is the freight hub for Southern Germany, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, North Italy, and the new EU countries Czech Republic and Poland.

We are based at the Munich Airport (MUC, Franz-Josef-Strauß). On the one hand, we operate directly at the airport in freight buildings and on the aircraft.

On the other hand, our customers also place us in other locations in the logistics chain (regulated agent, known consignor). We operate anywhere within the area serviced by the Munich Airport.
