The successful commissioning of additional scanner at Torkham Border Terminal by the 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 main highway leading to zero line, the machine has been dedicated for scanning of export vehicles while the existing one within the premises of Torkham Border Terminal is being used for scanning of import cargoes. Likewise, all vehicles of Afghan Transit Trade (ATT) undergo scanning process at NLC Complex at Jamrud. The practice of scanning is being carried out by NLC round the clock in order to facilitate Customs in timely clearance of import and export vehicles. It may be mentioned here that cargo scanning is regarded as the most effective tool to curb movement of contrabands and illegal items. The scanning at Torkham has resulted in seizure of foreign currency worth millions of rupees and huge quantity of arms and ammunitions, gold, narcotics and smuggled electronic gadgets which were handed to the officials of concerned government departments at the spot.
