Smiths Detection deploys centralised screening solution for DHL Australia

Smiths Detection, a threat detection and security screening tech provider, has deployed a fully operational multi-site central image processing solution for DHL Express Australia.

What does the solution mean for DHL Express Australia?

The multi-site central image processing solution connects existing Smiths Detection HI-SCAN 10080 EDX-2 is high-speed automatic explosive detection scanners at the sites in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane into one intelligent network that allows all X-ray images to be analysed at a single central location and provides consolidated data analytics and insights.

The intelligent centralised screening solution will enable DHL Express Australia to optimise staffing rostering, as well as significantly increase the utilisation of its security operators while reducing overall operational expenditure. The technology will be used for the safe and efficient screening of international air freight, in line with both TSA and Australian regulations.

Why is the solution a gamer-changer in the industry?

Ajay Sankaran, MD of Australia & Sales Director South Asia, Smiths Detection said: “We are delighted to have installed a screening and management platform for DHL Australia.”

“Remote screening and the use of a central management system provides the user with operational data from across the screening process, generating invaluable insights while making it easier to screen for threats and monitor overall performance. The platform can also be easily expanded to include more security screening equipment,” Ajay said.

“The initiative has significantly contributed to the improvement of DHL air cargo examination: screener utilisation, which has resulted in over 40% reduction in X-ray operator hours; decision times and compliance driven by collocation in a screening room; and reduction in insider threat due to the separation of the screener from physical freight. The improvements have been facilitated by the enhanced visibility thanks to the centralisation of management.”
