Airlines are being required to provide more information to U.S. officials regarding cargo which may pose a security risk.

The new measure took effect Tuesday, and now requires certain carriers to report cargo-loads to Customs and Border Protection before loading the plane.

Before the new rule, airlines weren’t required to provide information until a few hours before the plane landed.

Officials said the government was not always able to respond to the reported cargo in time, which posed a risk to national security.

CBP is now saying it can warn airline crews not to load suspicious cargo, making it safer for employees and the country.
