Smiths Detection has secured a contract to provide the customs authorities of Yokohama in Japan with two Cargo Inspection Systems (CIS).
Smiths Detection’s CIS system will be deployed at the Honmoku and Sendai Inspection Centers. It will be used to screen cargo trucks for narcotics and other prohibited items. The system discriminates between materials and is designed to reduce the movement of illegal substances and goods, while helping to maintain the constant flow of trade.
The Yokohama CIS systems are to be fitted with conveyor technology for enhanced performance and increased throughput. The systems at both sites will be installed in May 2023.
