The SGS team celebrates with the driver of the millionth truck to be scanned

SGS has reached an important milestone in Bahrain. One million trucks have been scanned in the country since the commencement of SGS scanning services in the country in 2008.

SGS has deployed two gantry container scanners in Bahrain, one at King Fahd Causeway and the other at Khalifa Bin Salman port.

To achieve such a record, the local team, currently led by Trevor Harden, has served more than 90,000 operating hours with an average availability of 98 percent. SGS is proud to continue supporting Bahrain Customs and is committed to help meet their objectives.
