RASCargO Screening System Is Now Available In South Africa
DiagNose’s RASCargO™ cargo screening system is now operational at the O.R. Tambo airport, Johannesburg, South Africa.
The South African operations of the RASCargO™ system are being performed by ACTS, DiagNose’s sister company.
RASCargO™ is a commercially available cargo screening technology that utilizes Remote Air Sampling for Canine Olfaction (RASCO). The RASCargO™ product is managed, researched and supported by DiagNose SAS – France.
RASCargO™ systems are already operational at Paris CDG, Lyon, London Heathrow, Manchester UK, Schiphol, and now also in South Africa.
The RASCargO™ technique was specially developed to serve the mass-screening cargo market that requires a solution for screening high volumes of dense cargo, with actually, no cargo size limitation, a solution that combines high detection rate with cost effectiveness.
“Safety and security remains a key priority for the cargo industry”, says Eytan Nevo, MD of ACTS “And not just in South Africa, but globally and one way of addressing it is by using advanced canine techniques such as RASCargO™, an innovative cargo screening system using highly trained dogs.”
“This program has been specially conceived for large volumes of merchandise as it is fast and effective,” says Nevo. “RASCargO has the screening ability for up to 40 trucks per hour and using a matrix based on analyses of two dogs it has a very high detection rates and very low false alarms.”
It also provides better security and operational efficiency at very fast turn-around times with no need to off-load and screen each parcel individually. Whilst the training of the dogs is very costly, the system is cost-effective once in place, mainly because it is based as a service providing cargo screening for cargo handlers, freight forwarders and airlines. these customers do not have to invest in expensive machinary, they pay only for the cargo actually screened.”
