Airline safety management firm Total Cargo Expertise (TCS) is looking to evolve its operations in the Americas after a busy 2022.

The ECS Group division said that it already supervises full-freighter turnarounds in Europe and is now looking to expand this service to North, Central and South America as well as Asia.

In addition, the full 24/7 support it currently provides to one dedicated ATR freighter will soon be extended to a second one.

And the company is looking to add to its team of 13 people in line with the expansion.

The plans come after a busy year for the company, which provides services such as auditing, risk assessment, process standards and dealing with the legal aspects of air cargo.

During the year the company also started carrying out supplier audits at warehouses and ramp handling agents and added a customs reporting team.

Robert Van De Weg, chief commercial officer of ECS Group, said: “In these changing times, keeping abreast of the market shift has never been more essential to GSSAs.

“These evolutions within TCE have indeed reaped some great rewards. That same year, as well as offering its services to a growing number of airlines, bringing it to a total of 14, TCE has successfully conducted 78 audits, performed 6 ACC3 validations and supervised 225 freighter turnarounds.

“Moreover, it has reported an impressive 3,631 flights to customs with 11,398 AWB in that period.”
