Now 70% of U.S-Bound Containers Are Screened

When the goal of 50 ports is reached, 90% of all transatlantic and transpacific cargo imported into the U.S. will be subject to pre-screening. Including the 20 ports that ship the greatest volume of containers to the U.S. CSI is also active in ports in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and North America.

The program works by identifying high-risk containers through an Automated Targeting system that requires manifests being issued 24 hours prior to departure from the distant port. Advanced radiation detection systems and other large-scale imaging technology are used to perform security inspections of the containers while they are still abroad.
