A new 60,000ft² cargo screening facility has been unveiled at Orlando International Airport in the US.

The cargo facility has been fitted with X-ray and ETD machinery by the screening equipment manufacturer National Cargo Screeners.

The screening facility will reduce congestion for screening domestic and international cargo shipments. It will also serve air carriers at Sanford International Airport and Tampa International Airport

The move is in line with the US Government’s 9/11 Commission Act, which requires all airports to be equipped with advanced cargo screening facilities by August 2010.
