The 11 busiest ports in the world adopt the electronic security container system

the 11 busiest ports in the world have begun to adopt the electronic security container system. This system is developed for the continuous improvement of automobile production and performance, which is closely related to the materials used, and helps the U.S. military track the food, ammunition and other projects it wants to ship overseas

this technology, developed by Savills technologies of Sunnyvale, California, relies on electronic seals placed at the closure of containers. France has stopped the use of plastic products for transportation once. Experts said that the seals can use radio signals to send information about the location of the container, the contents in the container and whether the box has been opened, which is very important to prevent smugglers or terrorists from using legitimate commercial cases

Meredith, a subsidiary of Hutchison Whampoa, the world's largest seaport operator, and general manager of Whampoa Whampoa, said, "so far, there is no way to track the whereabouts of the container. Only this way can we know whether the contents of the container are completely in line with the declaration."

so far, this system has been moderately put into operation. In the past two months, about 100 containers with electronic seals have been shipped from Hong Kong and Singapore to Seattle, Los Angeles and long beach, California. Similar amounts of containers were also transported from Europe to ports on the east coast of the United States

every year, millions of cargo containers - accounting for 95% of U.S. International Trade - enter the United States from 361 ocean and river ports. Since the September 11 incident, many people have worried that according to the estimated maximum payload, terrorists may use 12 meter long containers to smuggle biological weapons or other weapons into the United States

the US government has taken a multi pronged approach to dealing with such threats. The U.S. Coast Guard began to stipulate that all ships bound for U.S. seaports must notify them 96 hours before their arrival, so that elite maritime security teams can deal with any suspicious activities

the U.S. customs service has sent gamma ray technology to seaports around the world to scan containers to see if there are contraband. The customs also began to search some ships coming to the United States off the coast or in foreign ports to ensure that everything was in order before these ships opened, which meant that the passenger capacity of the bus must land in the United States

from February, the U.S. seaport administration will also stipulate that shippers must report the contents of containers 24 hours before the goods are loaded at foreign ports

electronic seals enable the heads of governments, seaports or shipping companies to monitor the whereabouts of containers through a secure internet station to determine whether they have been tampered with. The computerized scanner installed at the port can further determine the information of the contents of the box

participants in this so-called smart security trade route plan include three major port operators in the world: Hutchison Whampoa in Hong Kong, Po port in London and Singapore port group

seaports that have begun to adopt this technology include Hong Kong, Singapore, Seattle, Tacoma, Los Angeles and long beach in California, New York, New Jersey, Rotterdam in the Netherlands, Antwerp in Belgium and felixto in the UK
