Ports in Manila to use more x-ray machines

Manila (11 November) -- Smugglers will now find it harder to slip through their illegal cargoes in two of the busiest ports in the country.

Operators of the Ports of Manila (PoM) and the Manila International Container Port (MICP) have finally relented to allow the use of more x-ray machines that will scan container cargoes passing through the two ports.

The Bureau of Customs (BoC) said the Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI), which operates PoM, and the International Container Terminal Services Inc, (ITCSI) which operates MICP, have agreed to allow significant space in their facility to accommodate more x-ray equipment.

The additional machines for the two ports will be sourced from other ports where import volume is low.

BoC head of X-ray Division Lourdes Mangaoang said that ATI would use three more x-rays by end of the year, on top of the five machines already allotted to the port operator.

At the same time, ITCSI has also promised to allot space for 10 BoC x-rays during the first quarter of next year. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
