To our valued customers: BDP International will increase our Security Surcharge by .05 per kilo based on chargeable weight effective on 14 July 2014.

We are preparing ourselves for the further tightening of official security requirements. This means that fulfilling customs requirements, such as ACAS (Air Cargo Advance Screening) in the USA and the associated new technical developments and increased personnel expenses.
