About the Known Shipper Program
The Known Shipper program is administered by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The program allows certain “known shippers” to transport cargo on regular passenger airlines.
Being a known shipper can provide many benefits for companies shipping cargo by air. Not only do known shippers have access to better rates, but they also have more options for flight routes and less frequent delays.
To become a known shipper, one must go through an application process and meet certain requirements set forth by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). This includes providing background information on employees who handle or have access to cargo, as well as meeting security guidelines and procedures when shipping.
