09/09/15

We are pleased to announce that Focal Maritime Services is now an IATA Accredited Agent. This accreditation certifies that airfreight cargo is handled by duly qualified Focal Maritime personnel who have successfully obtained diplomas with credit in IATA and Dangerous Cargo handling.

IATA accreditation provides agents with industry recognition of their financial and professional competence. It also provides airlines with a worldwide distribution network of approved agents to sell their product. The relationship between member airlines and their registered cargo agents is administered under a set of IATA resolutions. These government-approved rules establish the rights and obligations of the parties, as well as the procedures and requirements for agents who wish to obtain and to maintain industry accreditation, thus becoming part of the airlines global cargo distribution network.

As an IATA accredited Agent, Focal Maritime Services will be able to participate even more in the carriage of cargo by air – a sector that the company has been working on for the last two years and which is already showing positive results. Our airfreight service is aimed at providing our clients with a comprehensive coverage for all their logistics requirements. This service is unique in that apart from the standard service by air, we can offer also a sea / air combination, which strikes a healthy balance between price and transit time. Our airfreight service operates on a worldwide basis through a network of correspondents and use of first class airlines. Furthermore, we offer a personalized service handled by IATA qualified staff and with full tracking facilities.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association of airlines. IATA’s mission is to represent, lead and serve the airline industry. IATA accreditation greatly simplifies the business relationship between cargo agents and airlines.
