100% Container Scanning: Security Policy Implications for Global Supply Chains

Allison C Bennett & Yi Zhuan Chin

Research Fest 2008

In August 2007 the US government passed the 9/11 Act, requiring all US-bound containerized cargo to be scanned using radiation and non-intrusive imaging equipment at foreign seaports prior to vessel loading by July 2012. This project creates a quantitative framework to assist importers in analyzing the financial costs and delay concerns associated with 100% container scanning.
