sicherheitSafety and security have top priority at TFM. They are also important in general in Switzerland. Safety and security standards in Switzerland have been harmonized with those applying in the EU. To ensure that your cargo is safe and secure at all times we carry out sophisticated risk analyses.









The Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) is charged with ensuring that the high safety standards in civil aviation in Switzerland are maintained according to the guidelines of the National Aviation Security Program (NASP). FOCA reviews the activities of companies carrying out airfreight security checks on a regular basis.
Known Consignor
Known consignors send air cargo or airmail in their own name and for their own account, based on a safety program certified by FOCA. They have to comply with the relevant security regulations and standards. All items of cargo and all mail consignments are subjected to security checks before they are loaded onto an aircraft. Airlines only accept items of cargo and mail consignments for carriage if the airline itself or a known consignor or a regulated agent has carried out the necessary security checks.

Regulated Agent
Regulated agents are companies such as forwarding and transport services providers. They carry out security checks of air cargo, as well as express and mail consignments on behalf of airlines in accordance with the relevant laws and regulations. Regulated agents are responsible for ensuring that the goods contained in a consignment correspond to the description provided by the consignor, and that consignments do not contain any prohibited or dangerous objects or substances and that they have not been manipulated by a third party. Every regulated agent has to develop a security strategy and program according to the rules set down by the NASP in order to be certified by FOCA. TFM is a FOCA certified regulated agent.
