New USDA Requirement Regarding Dog Shipments


Effective, November 17, the USDA will require Delta Cargo representatives to inquire about a dog’s intended purpose for travel at the time of booking. For all resale dogs entering the U.S. from international locations, shippers must provide the following documentation: dogs must be at least six months of age, and fully immunized against rabies, including the following shots commonly referred to as DHLPP: distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirus and parainfluenza virus. Finally, all dogs six months or older must also be accompanied by an import permit.

The new ruling does not apply to dogs when:
• No transfer of ownership or control of a dog to another person for significant consideration after importation into the U.S. (i.e., dog is a personal pet, dog is used for hunting purposes, dog is used for show or competition, or dog is used for breeding or semen collection)
• Dogs imported for training as working dogs (i.e., puppies imported by legitimate training organizations such as police academies)

 

Delta Cargo introduces IATA’s single process eAWB


Delta Cargo is pleased to announce the introduction of IATA’s single process eAWB to customers. With this new process, customers will no longer need to keep track of countries that require paper air waybills (AWB). They can now transmit electronic data for 100% of their shipments - regardless of the routing - and tender cargo without a paper AWB.

To take advantage of this new program, follow these simple steps:

·         Join the IATA Multilateral Agreement for international shipments

·         Contact either your sales representative or Delta’s eCommerce department to determine a preferred communication method for sending electronic data (FWB)

We are excited about the opportunity to partner with our customers to continue to be a leader in support of IATA’s efreight initiative. Eliminating paper modernizes our business and provides efficiencies across the supply chain. The eAWB is the first step in transitioning to efreight.

Delta Cargo Participates in Habitat for Humanity Build in Seattle


Delta Cargo employees were joined by representatives from the Airforwarders Association for a special build day as part of Delta’s ongoing Habitat for Humanity build in Seattle.

The Seattle build marks Delta’s 200th Habitat for Humanity build and is part of the fall volunteer program with Habitat in six cities. More than 2,300 employees across the airline are participating in projects in some of Delta’s hubs and key cities, including Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City and Seattle.

Several board members and executives from AfA and Delta Cargo leaders also supported the project, which will restore a home for a family of four. The build day included concrete pouring, interior and exterior painting and staining a fence. The family also made an appearance at the site and thanked the crew for their hard work and commitment to responding to the needs of others, a gesture unique to this build.

“Cargo was thrilled to invite our AfA partners to participate in Delta’s 200th Habitat for Humanity build, a milestone in our long-standing relationship with Habitat,” said Ray Curtis, v.p. – Cargo Commercial. “The build day was a wonderful opportunity to bring the collaborative relationships we have with air freight forwarders and put them to work for the betterment of our communities.”

“We are amazed by the outstanding work that Delta employees have been doing for years with Habitat for Humanity to build safe and affordable places to live for so many people,” said Brandon Fried, AfA’s executive director. “We in the freight forwarder community are proud to be able to roll up our sleeves and join in this effort.”

The build was the sixth to be fully funded through proceeds from Delta's in-flight recycling program. More than 1 million pounds of material were recycled in 2013, and more than 8.5 million pounds have been recycled since the start of the program in 2007.

Through its Force For Global Good, Delta is committed to giving back to the communities it serves. Habitat for Humanity builds are one of many ways Delta people give of their time to better the lives of others.
