Woodland forwarder installs Westminster X-ray scanner at London Heathrow


The Woodland Group has become the first UK freight forwarder to purchase and install a Westminster dual view cargo and pallet X-ray scanner, a state-of-the-art machine more commonly seen in the United States, the Shipping Gazette informs. 
The company's first WG IS1517 cargo and pallet X-ray scanner is already operational at Woodland's air cargo centre at Heathrow airport. The company said it's so impressed with the unit that it is now considering a second machine for the group's warehouse in New York.
"We believe that logistics providers will come under increasing pressure to ensure cargo is scanned from multiple angles and so we are delighted to be leading the way with the latest technology," said Andy Dennis, Woodland's head of air.
"This purchase represents a substantial investment and highlights the importance that Woodland place on securing the global supply chain."
The WG IS1517, which is 7.9 metres in length and stands 2.9 metres high, is used to inspect cargo, pallets and large parcels and can accommodate a maximum load of 2,000 kilogrammes.
Peter Fowler, the chief executive officer of Westminster Group PLC, which supplied the machine, said: "Woodland is the first UK freight forwarder to install Westminster's high performance, dual-view scanners which will not only increase efficiency but also give piece of mind that cargo has been properly screened."
