El Salvador: A Successful Partnership
Learn how Cotecna helped improve security, efficiency and safety at El Salvador border crossings through the implementation of a 100% scanning scheme.
With approximately 50,000 vehicles passing through El Salvador’s borders every month, an integrated monitoring system is an essential priority for the country.
Following an international tender, Cotecna, a world-leading provider of cargo scanning services, was awarded a 10-year concession contract to improve security, efficiency and safety at El Salvador border crossings, in association with the leading high energy x-ray scanner manufacturer Smiths Detection.
Cotecna has financed and supplied 13 scanners, carrying out extensive civil engineering and construction works at the inspection sites. It has also provided the required infrastructure with the aim of implementing a new scanner technology solution, operating and maintaining it for the entire duration of the contract.
