TSA Indirect Air Carrier (IAC)

Expedited air shipping on commercial airplanes 

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Indirect Air Carriers are companies that provide ground transportation of cargo to and from airports, but do not operate their own aircraft. As such, these companies are responsible for ensuring that all cargo is properly screened and secure, in compliance with TSA regulations. 

Indirect Air Carrier companies must undergo a rigorous certification process and regular audits by the TSA to ensure that they are meeting all applicable regulations and standards. Additionally, these companies are subject to strict reporting and record-keeping requirements to help ensure the security of the cargo they transport.

Using a TSA-approved Indirect Air Carrier (IAC) can be a wise choice for numerous reasons. Not only do approved IACs have access to a greater range of flight routes but they can also help you meet tight delivery deadlines at better shipping rates.

As an IAC-approved logistics company, Mercury provides expedited air shipping on commercial airplanes so that your shipment can be delivered in a very expedited manner, often same day.

Mercury works directly with airlines and airports to ensure that your shipment gets on the next flight out (NFO) and follows all necessary TSA security requirements. With our nationwide and international shipping capabilities, distance is no barrier to getting your shipment where it needs to be fast.
