Scanning and Imaging Shipping Containers Overseas: Costs and Alternatives
Keith Hall (ad)
Each year, about 12 million shipping containers enter U.S. ports. Due to concern that terrorists might use containers to smuggle weapons of mass destruction into the country, the federal government implemented several security measures. Among them, the Department of Homeland Securityńˇ╗s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection (CBP) scans every container entering the U.S. by sea or land to detect radiation. CBP also identifies about 5% of all incoming seaborne containers as high risk and inspects them with X-ray or gamma-ray imaging systems. CBP opens and examines containers if the images suggest that the cargo is potentially dangerous or does not match the manifest. Contents of this report: Costs and Other Challenges of Scanning All U.S.-Bound Containers at Overseas Ports; Container Shipments and the Process for Inspecting Them; Options to Scan and Image Containers. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
