CCTV System

Security and safety always play a very important role in all PACTL activities. Closely working together with the airport, customs and other authorities PACTL profoundly under stands its respective responsibility towards the air cargo industry as well as the general public. Investments into x-ray machines, a sophisticated cose circuit TV, an entry & exit control system and an independent security company to control the PACTL areas as well as well trained and dedicated staff make it possible for PACTL to handle the cargo with all necessary care and protection. We believe that security is not a matter of routine but of personal commitment.

Security Build Up Area

To speed up export cargo processing, PACTL is the first Handing Terminal to introduce dedicted warehouse space within its facilities to forwarding agents for palletising. The forwarding agent extension is equipped and supervised b PACTL, providing basically the same security, safety and handling equipment for cargo acceptance and build up, as used by PACTL itself. The advantage of this "shared use concept" lies in speed, as cut off times for BUPs are lowered to 120 minutes.

T- Cargo Area

To speed up the import process PACTL introduced the T - Cargo Area in 2005. Together with the agents PACTL breaks down the import ULDs and loads the freight directly on trucks to be forwarded to the agent's bonded warehouses. Addtional storage time at PACTL can therefore be avoided for the benefit and in favor of all participating parties.
