Customs and border protection is evolving constantly, extending from collection of excise duties to identification of threats to local and national security. Ports and borders have become the first line of defence.
Smiths Detection’s powerful systems have set the industry standard in cargo inspection, to reduce international shipments of contraband and discover explosives, weapons, even material for weapons of mass destruction. We meet the challenge of rapid detection without disrupting the daily flow of goods.
