Questions still remain on who is responsible for container screening at ports and how it should be done. Alex Hughes reports
Here's a round-up of the latest products and services on the market all aimed at saving terminal operators time and money by improving operations.
Scanning specialist Smiths has launched its next-generation high-energy X-ray scanner, the first pass-through cargo system to offer steel penetration of 30cm combined with three-colour material discrimination.
Smiths Detection, part of the global Smiths Group, recently delivered two HCV-Mobile systems to French customs, to screen trucks for narcotics, contraband and counterfeit goods. It is the first time the French government has purchased mobile scanners for customs applications. The contract includes an option to buy two more HCV-Mobiles.
Smiths Detection has developed a system that will distinguish between organic and nonorganic materials in cargo.
Bill Mawer of Smiths Detection explains to Alex Hughes how those who need but cannot afford scanning equipment, can be helped out.
Smith' s Detection has received an order from the Australian Customs Service for its newly introduced container/ palletised goods cargo X-ray system, HI-SCAN 250250, to go into service at Adelaide.
