We successfully meet the compliance requirements of the TSA's Indirect Air Carrier Management System and Known Shipper's Program.
Eagle Express is required to have a pre-existing relationship with a shipper prior to accepting or shipping their cargo through TSA’s Known Shipper Management System which is an automated system which verifies the validity and integrity of shippers.
