Qantas Freight CTO Announcement: EACE Screening Arrangements, Cut off times and Revised Fees

Dear Members

Further to regular updates in our Bulletins and AFIF News, we have now received the following advice, together with links to Qantas EACE Screening Arrangements, Cut Off Times and Revised Fees, plus FAQs.

Please ensure this advice is circulated to all relevant personnel within your organisation.

Revised cut-off times and fees relating to new export screening requirements are now available for you to view on

 As you know, from 1 March 2019, all export freight must either be examined at piece level or originate from a Known Consignor (KC) or Regulated Air Cargo Agent (RACA) with a valid security declaration before it can be accepted for uplift.

In preparation for these industry-wide changes, we’ve been working hard to ensure that the new lodgement process is seamless and have made internal enhancements to our processes, staffing and more to make this happen. Rest assured, we’ll continue to review our processes with your experience as our priority.

As previously communicated, we strongly recommend that your shipments are pre-screened, however if you do require a screening service with us, a reminder that you will need to present your freight as loose and lodge in accordance with revised cut-offs. 

You can find out more about these changes and how they affect you or your business in our frequently asked questions.
