RESTON, Va. (May 14, 2019)— AMK9, a Constellis company, announced today that it is now a Certified Cargo Security Program – Canine (CCSP-K9) under the Transportation Security Administration, providing a secure solution to meet regulatory requirements. AMK9, the largest canine detection services company globally, received certification because of its demonstrated high standards in training and operations.

“TSA had the foresight to allow third-party canines to assist in meeting regulatory demands and ensuring safety, without impeding the flow of commerce,” said Jon Wertjes, President of AMK9. “The demand for 100% air cargo screening on passenger aircraft is a contributing factor to congestion across America’s gateway airports. Our TSA-certified canine working teams clear intact pallets of cargo in a fraction of the time compared to current devices on the market.”

AMK9 has provided explosive detection and security services worldwide for more than 15 years. AMK9 specializes in the global mobilization of 600 explosive detection, narcotics detection, patrol and dual/multipurpose canines, with an infrastructure of more than 45 operating sites and six regional project management and training facilities.

As a Constellis company, AMK9 leverages its combined services, assets and people, serving private entities, U.S. and foreign governments, coalition forces, diplomatic missions and international oil companies.
