“The rapid and effective screening of containerized shipments with minimum interruption to the movement of goods inside the ports while ensuring maximum threat detection is an indication of the intensified non-intrusive capabilities of the Bureau of Customs through modernized scanning equipment”, pahayag ng BOC.
“Moreover, the advanced scanning technologies in the port did not only boost the performance of the Bureau under its mandate, but also increase the entire port operation’s resilience and adaptability in times of operational disruption. The Bureau of Customs, through the X-ray Inspection Project, ensures the public that it will continue to work on further improving its scanning capability to continuously minimize unnecessary delays in trade, collect appropriate revenue for the government, and further intensify border security in support to the country’s rehabilitation process”, susog ng BOC.
