According to Long, from May 2019, the Branch and SaiGon New Port Corporation will deploy the operation of the Megaport system. All goods containers exported to the US at Cat Lai Port must be scannedvia this system to detect radiation.
The Megaport system is a scan system to detect illegal transport of nuclear materials and radioactive materials for imported and exported goods transported by container through the port.
The system is supported by the US government.
In 2014, this system was installed and operated at three ports under the management of the Ba Ria-Vung Tau Customs Department, including Tan Cang - Cai Mep Container Terminal (TCCT), Tan Cang-Cai Mep International Container Terminal (TCIT) and SP-PSA international port.
The implementation of the Megaport system affirms Vietnam's goodwill and cooperation in prevention of terrorism and global security protection, contributing to ensuring the security of each country, stability and security in the region and the world.
