DHL Hong Kong acquires four cargo scanners as e-commerce volumes surge

Freight security screening specialist Smiths Detection[1] has won a contract to supply DHL Express (Hong Kong) with four HI-SCAN 10080 EDX-2is[2] units to achieve “greater throughput capacity and increased security levels” as the rise in e-commerce volumes continues. The high-speed system automatically screens cargo and baggage for explosives, offering “one of the highest detection rates in its class,” said Smiths in a statement. This contract follows the earlier implementation of the system in DHL Singapore and Japan.

The statement coninued: “The international e-commerce sector continues to enjoy exponential growth. In Asia alone, the online retail market is set to reach £1.2 trillion by 2021, with Hong Kong identified as an ideal base for e-commerce providers to expand in the wider Asia region. “Detection and security systems that can help increase the shipment inspection speed and throughput capacity play a crucial role for international delivery service providers.”

The 10080 EDX-2is[3] system uses automatic image evaluation and X-ray generator and sensor technology and is able to screen up to 1,800 bags per hour. Automation of the primary inspection process offers the added benefits of reducing manpower and recurring costs. The systems will also be integrated with Automated Material Handling Systems (MHS) for air cargo screening.

Said Jerome de Chassey, Vice President, Asia-Pacific Region, Smiths Detection: “With the HI-SCAN 10080 EDX-2is, DHL Express will be able to speed up the inspection process and more than double its throughput rates.

Together with our unparalleled automated explosive detection system, we are confident that we can help DHL Express deliver the security and peace of mind that their customers deserve.”

Smiths Detection has more than 75,000 X-ray systems in more than 180 countries and over 24,500 explosive trace (ETDs) detectors installed worldwide.

iContainers reminds shippers of importance of additional cargo insurance

In the wake of the major fire that broke out on the Maersk Honam in the Arabian Sea earlier this month online freight forwarder iContainers has reminded shippers of the importance of investing in appropriate cargo insurance. This is especially pertinent “given that Maersk has now declared general average, which means that the surviving cargo has to pay a share of the cost for the vessel damage, the tow, clean up, legal settlements, etc,” said iContainers vp of sales and operations Klaus Lysdal. By law, all shipping carriers are obliged to offer a minimum amount of insurance, but it offers limited coverage. iContainers said its general advice to its clients is always to purchase additional coverage to protect themselves from worst-case scenarios.

“As a shipper, you can and should always buy extra cargo insurance to further protect your merchandise and cushion your damage. Given the uncertainties of mother nature, it’s a worthy investment as it would cover your cargo while it’s in storage and in transit until it reaches the safe hands of your buyer,” said Lysdal. Citing the example of the Maersk Honam, iContainers said that even two weeks after the fire, Maersk has yet to confirm to which port the vessel will eventually be headed and when cargo will be able to be unloaded.

In such a situation, having cargo insurance not only facilitates the post-shipping processes financially, but also logistically, iContainers pointed out. “For clients who have insurance, filing the claim with their insurance will help speed up the process of releasing their cargo,” explained Lysdal. He added that claims are also generally processed faster through insurance companies since without insurance, shippers may be left with various carrier-related liabilities, including a proportional portion of all the losses and damage since Maersk has since declared general average. “Without cargo insurance, your cargo is likely to be held hostage for payment of those charges.

Simply said, without insurance, you stand to gain nothing or next to nothing at most,” concluded Lysdal.
