The Passing of Walter Beadling

It is with my deepest regret to inform our clients that my dear friend, colleague and business partner, Walter Beadling passed away. The funeral was held near his home in Allentown PA on 10/8/2021.

Walt and I have been close friends for 32 years and business partners for about 12 years in the Cargo Security Alliance. Walt was a truly great guy in every respect. His honesty, integrity and counsel were the backbone of our alliance. He leaves a wife Jan, sons Walter (4) and Charlie, and daughter Alisha. He was our managing partner since the inception of the company. I will be assuming the role of President going forward. CSA will continue to operate as it has for these past 12 years offering consulting services in air, sea and ground cargo and a series of security products designed for these platforms. We also offer design services for those interested in developing a Certified Cargo Screening Facility. If you were in contact with Walt on any project or special orders, please redirect those inquiries to me at 941 575 0243 or by email at
