Scopelitis Transportation Consulting Launches Air Cargo Security Consulting, Compliance and Training Service
STC Brings On Seasoned Transportation Consultant
WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 23, 2017) – Scopelitis Transportation Consulting, LLC (STC) announces the expansion of its services to include Air Cargo Security Consulting, Compliance and Training. STC President and CEO Dave Osiecki is teaming up with Senior Consultant Doug Brittin of Brittin Aviation Services on this expansion.
STC is a business consulting venture launched by Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary transportation law firm in the fall of 2016.
“Our new Air Cargo Security service will fill an immediate need for clients whose future depends on their ability to remain compliant with current air cargo transport, screening, personnel, and air cargo facility-related protocols,” said Scopelitis Law Firm President and Managing Partner Greg Feary. “This is the first of many opportunities to expand our portfolio in order to best serve our clients.”
STC began by providing consulting services to clients in the areas of electronic logging devices, independent contractor issues, and driver coercion matters. With the addition of Brittin, STC will now consult new and existing clients on specialized air cargo security compliance, best practices recommendations, and advice.
“As the air cargo industry continues to grow, the safety and security of air cargo moving throughout our aviation and surface transportation system will continue to be a significant issue for transportation businesses and government entities,” said STC President and CEO Dave Osiecki. “We’re thrilled to partner with Brittin to provide our clients with strategic advice and support as they navigate the evolving air cargo security environment.”
Brittin began his career in transportation in 1977 and retired from his position as secretary general at The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) in 2016. Prior to TIACA he served as a senior executive service division director in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Air Cargo Office.
“The team at Scopelitis is known for their ability to be responsive to industry change and client needs,” said Brittin. “I look forward to using my knowledge of federal and global regulatory systems to consult public and private sector companies on keeping up with ever-changing security requirements intended to safeguard and protect our aviation and surface transportation networks.”
