Drive through container scanner

The port commenced operation of ‘drive through container scanner’ effective December 2019. The scanning system adheres to the guidelines issued by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board specifications issued by Directorate of Logistics (DOL). The state-of-the-art machinery with UPS power back up will help detect contraband or prohibited cargoes and completes the scanning process within a short duration of 25-30 seconds. The entire container load on the trailer can pass through the machine, which can scan ~70 vehicles in an hour. The scanning system is provided with multiple safety interlocks for a drive through scanning. This will reduce the time taken for the container scanning process and will facilitate the hassle-free movement of cargo and enhance ease of doing business at the port.
