One of the most important issues the port is facing nowadays, is cocaine smuggle.

It is the main ambitionto stop the cocaine smuggle via the port , in the short term and with a maximum (100%?) use of sophisticated technologies.

Knowing that, with the current approach, Customs are only able to scan and analyze just a fraction of the total amount of incoming containers, there is still a long way to go in order to reach the intended objective.

Within the realization process, the mission and strategic objectives of the Customs Union must also be taken into account, as there are : on the one hand, protect with more physical controls that are disruptive to trade and, on the other hand, facilitate the legal trade as much as possible by pursuing a minimum delay at the control points.


Taking into account the ever-increasing trading volumes and related data which customs services are expected to supervise and control, and the reduction of customs workforce, it is a challenge to reach maximum security and facilitation through the implementation and use of most sophisticated technologies at the right time and the right place in the logistics chain.

In order to achieve the intended purpose, technological improvements both in terms of hardware and software, and the integration of both, are necessary.

The intended technology should be able to automatically identify goods and means of transport showing anomalies, in this case cocaine, and remove them from the logistics chain for further inspection. At the same time, the intended technology must be able to determine the precise location of the cocaine in the goods and means of transport.

Therefore the intended technology needs to combine high system performance, low throughput times and must be a 100% reliable by excluding false positive and false negative control results, and by minimal human intervention.

What is the detailed solution you propose ? In case of a partial solution : How do you see the connection to other parts of the technology/other technologies ?
