KUWAIT: The Customs General Department has launched a new vehicle inspection system to help detect contrabands hidden inside vehicles coming to Shuwaikh Port. The CIP-300 light-vehicle low-energy inspection system by ‘Smiths Detection’ was also installed at both the Salmi and Nuwaiseeb border checkpoints, as it can be used to inspect vehicles and minibuses up to three meters in height.

This device is considered one of the fastest and most efficient systems used globally, as the radiology scan takes 1-2 minutes while the full scan takes 2-4 minutes, the customs department said in a statement.
