Re: Jailed For Sending Chemicals!

Daede1, pls don't take offense if the shoe doesn't fit, and I take your point re funny shipments being liable to slip through the larger ffs. And in chemicals there are quite a few very good specialist firms, mostly European. But that's not where the problem lies. I think people like Mr Chandnani (the shipper in question, named in the CAA link) are more likely to go to a small inexperienced consolidator than the KNs, DHLs or the specialist chemical ffs.

You're in the business so I'm sure you are very well aware of how stiff the competition for freight is. And of how that can lead service providers to sometimes cast a blind eye to the cargo's properties.

My bets would be on stiffer and stiffer regulation.

Not quite the same topic, but the precient J. Robert Oppenheimer , when asked by a US senator,

"What instrument would you use to detect an atomic bomb hidden somewhere in a city?"

Responded, "A screwdriver [to open each and every crate or suitcase]."

Not sure what year he said it.

He won't do all the time as he will get an automatic release date of six months inside. He may serve less if he is considered suitable for "tagging".

The decision lies with HM Prison Service, not the Court.
