Correos de Costa Rica Unveils X-ray technology to check parcels

The equipment was donated by the U.S. Embassy San Jose

On Wednesday, the Correos de Costa Rica (Post Office) unveiled the new X-ray equipment for scanning parcels.

The equipment, donated by the Embassy of the United States, has the capacity to store up to 150,000 images, which can be accessed for a more exhaustive review in case of detecting any irregularity, as well as to use them as evidence in a criminal case.

The scanner allows detecting any threat, including drugs and explosives, through a high-capacity X-ray generator that penetrates a large number of materials such as metals and plastic.

The center processes some 40,000 pieces daily, between packages and mail, of national and international origin.
