PIL adopts cargo screening tool for detection of dangerous goods

Pacific International Lines (PIL) has adopted Hazcheck Detect, a smart cargo screening tool that detects misdeclared and undeclared dangerous goods in containerised shipments.

Hazcheck Detect specifically screens cargo booking details for keywords and includes an industry library to enable suspicious bookings to be identified that may be misdeclared or undeclared dangerous goods and other compliance cargo.

Booking data is sent to Hazcheck Detect through an API, screening all information against thousands of complex rules, allowing non-compliant cargo to be detected within seconds rather than days. The Hazcheck Detect case management feature also allows cargo to be cancelled or re-booked with the correct declarations.

Bojarajoo Subramaniam, Assistant General Manager, Operations and Procurement, PIL said:
“We are pleased to adopt this cargo screening tool, an important industry solution. We have already seen improvements in the amount of misdeclared/undeclared dangerous goods that we are picking up in the booking process using the case management function of the tool.

Mr. Subramaniam added that, “The analytics provided gives the staff much greater visibility of what is happening in the screening process, raising standards across the whole company. In just a few weeks of using the tool, we have been able to prevent over 100 containers from being loaded onto our ships that should have been subject to IMDG Code checks.”
