Cargo Scanning Capacity Enhanced at Torkham Border

The successful commissioning of an additional scanner at Torkham Border Terminal by National Logistics Cell (NLC) has significantly increased the scanning capacity of import and export cargo vehicles at the busiest crossing point between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Installed near Shaheed Morr on the main highway leading to zero line, the machine has been dedicated to the scanning of export vehicles while the existing one within the premises of the Torkham Border Terminal is being used for scanning of import cargoes.

Likewise, all vehicles of Afghan Transit Trade (ATT) undergo scanning processes at NLC Complex at Jamrud. The practice of scanning is being carried out by NLC round the clock in order to facilitate Customs in the timely clearance of import and export vehicles.

Cargo scanning is regarded as the most effective tool to curb the movement of contrabands and illegal items. The scanning at Torkham has resulted in the seizure of foreign currency worth millions of rupees and a huge quantity of arms and ammunition, gold, narcotics and smuggled electronic gadgets that were handed to the officials of concerned government departments at the spot.
