Security technology company Smiths Detection has deployed a fully operational multi-site central image processing and management solution for DHL Express Australia. The technology will be used for screening international air freight, in line with both Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Australian regulations.

The solution connects existing Smiths Detection Hi-Scan 10080 EDX-2is high-speed automatic explosive detection scanners at the sites in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane into one intelligent network. This enables all x-ray images to be analyzed at a single central location and provides consolidated data analytics and insights. The centralized screening solution is expected to enable DHL Express Australia to improve staffing rostering, as well as increase the use of its security operators while reducing overall operational expenditure.

Ajay Sankaran, managing director of Australia and sales director of South Asia at 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.

“The initiative has significantly contributed to the improvement of DHL air cargo examination in all key areas of measurement: screener utilization, which has resulted in a greater than 40% reduction in x-ray operator hours; decision times and compliance driven by collocation in a purpose-designed screening room; and reduction in insider threat risk due to the separation of the screener from the physical freight. These improvements have been facilitated by the vastly enhanced visibility associated with the centralization of management.”
