The government of Costa Rica and APM Terminals Moin inaugurated two new container scanners to increase security for boxes leaving the terminal.
The new equipment will join an existing scanner that has been in operation since 2020 aiming to provide better tools to the Government of Costa Rica in order to prevent illegal cargo and container contamination.
This important investment, made by APM Terminals Moin, will be implemented and operated by the Costa Rican authorities and will provide greater security for the country’s exports. From 13 July, the Government of Costa Rica will handle the security of the Moin Container Terminal (TCM) through local law enforcement.
Leo Huisman, regional director of APM Terminals Americas, commented, “Our terminal improves the country’s connectivity to various markets, allowing exports and imports to numerous countries.”
He added, “The inauguration of these scanners will allow our customers and international markets to see Costa Rica as a safer country and improve the country’s reputation. Our thanks to the Government of Costa Rica for the collaboration in the search for increased security of imports and exports.”
