ALIC (AFRICA LINK INSPECTION CO. LTD)

SCANNING FACILITY
The Scanning Facility was commissioned and started operations in April 2005. An important advantage for the operation of the X-Ray container scanner at the Queen Elizabeth II Quay is for Port Security and is in fulfillment of the International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) regulations. Container scanning services at the Quay serve to minimize some of the security risks that are inherent, with the country being a participant in international trade. This measure is crucial because the potential for external threats coming into the country through the Port has increased over recent years.
X-Ray scanning is employed to verify and analyze the contents of containerized cargo during the Customs clearance process, with the possibility of also detecting hazardous or prohibited goods. This is achieved in a non-intrusive way without having to regularly empty the contents thereby improving the efficiency and effectiveness of Customs tasks at the Quay.
SCANNING PROCEDURES:
Step 1 The drivers bring their vehicles to foxtrot 1 (entry gate) where the scanning operatives check the container number against documents submitted to confirm that they march.
Step 2 The vehicle is driven by the facility driver alongside the ports driver into the scanning hall.
Step 3 The facility driver then takes the document submitted by the agent into the control room and there the documents are scanned alongside the container. Thereafter, the driver takes his vehicle out of the facility and awaits the result of the scan. On average, the whole process takes 5 minutes.
