Smiths Detection today announces a €5.6 million service contract with Italian Customs to provide round-the-clock maintenance support for its cargo scanner units deployed at 14 ports in Italy.

The Italian Customs authority, Agenzia delle Dogane, renewed its current service agreement with Smiths Detection for an additional four years. The contract will cover the maintenance of Smiths Detection's freight-screening fleet which supports Italy's customs and security staff in their efforts to cut the flow of weapons, narcotics and contraband in and out of the country.

Terry Gibson, Vice President Service, Smiths Detection, said: "The renewal of this contract underscores not only the value of our world-leading security technologies but also the excellent level of after-market service we are able to provide customs authorities across the globe."

The Smiths Detection equipment covered by the contract comprises mainly advanced mobile X-ray screening systems that provide quick and accurate detection of illicit goods in truck and container consignments.
