U.S. Customs & Border Patrol Notice Regarding U.S. Import Shipments
We have been advised by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection that they are experiencing some issues that may impact clearance messages sent from ACE to carriers for U.S. import shipments. Delta will continue to work closely with the CBP and the local ports to clear shipments and minimize the impact for our customers.
Important Notice About “Scam” Emails Involving Delta Air Lines and Delta Cargo
It has come to our attention that certain members of the Cargo community recently received scam emails purporting to be legitimate communications from Delta Air Lines and Delta Cargo.
These scam emails typically reference an application for a commercial code-share agreement with Delta Cargo, and instruct recipients to deposit funds into a bank account in the United States purportedly affiliated with a Delta entity. These scam emails typically use fake email addresses such as “firstname.lastname@example.org” and “email@example.com”, rather than legitimate “@delta.com” email addresses. These solicitations may also include requests to deposit funds into personal bank accounts rather than into authorized Delta corporate accounts, and may include fake contact information such as phone numbers that have no connection with the individuals running the scam.
Be on the alert, these emails are fraudulent, and are not authorized communications from any legitimate entity affiliated with Delta Air Lines. Any use of the name, or names similar to, “Delta”, “Delta Air Lines”, “Delta Cargo”, or “Delta Corporate Team” in this setting are unauthorized and fraudulent. Do not open any attachments to such emails, and do not follow any instructions to send money to any bank account or provide any information in response to these emails.
Delta Air Lines is working with appropriate authorities to crack down on those involved in perpetrating these schemes. If you have received any communication that appears fraudulent and claims to be from Delta Air Lines, please send us a full copy of what you received, then please immediately delete the e-mail . If you have a question about the legitimacy of any email you have received, please contact us.

Delta Cargo announces its 2015 Summer Live Animal Program
Delta Cargo will launch our Summer Live Animal program on Friday, May 15 through September 27 for domestic and international markets. This program allows for the transportation of live animals as cargo during summer months. See a list of participating cargo stations. For passengers traveling with animals as part of their checked baggage allowance, Delta’s annual passenger embargo remains in effect between May 15 and September 15; however, military animals are excluded from the annual embargo. Learn more about our Live Animal program.
We do not accept American, English or French bulldogs at any time, for any reason. Additionally, restrictions regarding other snub-nosed breeds strictly apply.
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)
