What is Customs X-Ray Exam?

CBP X-ray examination is a non-invasive inspection process used by customs authorities to inspect the contents of shipping containers without physically opening them. It involves the use of X-ray technology to create images of the container's contents, allowing customs officials to assess the cargo's contents and identify any potential risks or discrepancies.

The use of X-ray technology allows customs authorities to quickly assess containers for potential risks while minimizing the disruption to trade and logistics operations. It is considered a relatively efficient and cost-effective method compared to more invasive inspection methods like physical searches, which can be time-consuming and costly.
