“BCT and the Port of Gdynia have been pioneers in the integration of modern port solutions, and this investment by the Customs Office is a continuation of this commitment. Thanks to the modern scanner, Gdynia cements its position as among the most modern, safest and efficient terminals in this part of the world,” said Krzysztof Szymborski, BCT president.
The dual-energy Rapiscan G-60 scanner shows the contents of containers and can distinguish organic substances from others. Scanning a container takes only six to eight minutes, significantly hastening customs clearance time at the terminal.
Pomeranian Customs decided to install the scanner at BCT because most of the sea-borne cargo imported to Poland is shipped via the facility, which has experienced a significant increase in cargo volume for the past two years.
