CEB and Cargohaus inaugurate first air cargo inspection portal at NAIA T3
The Philippines’ leading carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), together with Cargohaus, inaugurated the Smiths Detection CIP-300 air cargo inspection portal, at the NAIA Terminal 3, yesterday. The air cargo inspection portal is the first of its kind to be installed in an airport in Asia. It will be for Cebu Pacific Air’s priority use for all transhipment cargoes loaded in international flights to and from Manila.
The air cargo inspection portal can accommodate and screen up to 9 tons of air cargo dolleys and unit load devices (ULDs). It is powered by a low-energy X-ray source and uses advanced material discrimination software which provides high quality images that reveal detailed contents of freight and baggage.
“CEB is proud to be the first carrier to use this state-of-the-art air cargo inspection portal. Enhanced speed and accuracy of cargo inspection would greatly benefit our shippers and consignees, as we continue to operate airport-to-airport cargo delivery via our extensive route network,” said Joey Macagga, CEB VP for Fuel and Cargo Operations.
The inaugural ceremony was held yesterday at the ramp area of the NAIA Terminal 3. The event was attended by Cebu Pacific President and CEO Lance Gokongwei, Lina Group of Companies Chairman Alberto Lina, Cargohaus, Inc. President Rudy Fulo, NAIA Terminal 3 Manager Engineer Octavio Lina, Department of Transportation and Communications, Office for Transportation Security Director Atty. Miguel Oraa and Smiths Detection General Manager Kui Meng Chia.
