Ninety percent of Iran's imports and transit will be controlled by advanced inspection technology by the Iranian yearend (March 20, 2019), the head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration said. 
“Equipping the country’s customs terminals with advanced X-ray systems that conduct speedy scans and help control ports of entry is one of IRICA’s main plans,” the administration’s news outlet also quoted Foroud Asgari as saying.   
The customs of Sarakhs, the northeastern border crossing on the Iran-Turkmenistan frontier, and Dogharoun in the border city of Taybad located on the Iran-Afghanistan border, both in Khorasan Razavi Province, were equipped with advanced X-ray trucks this week. 
The X-ray scanning system of Dogharoun can check 120 trucks per hour and send their information to operators in the destination customs offices. It can also be configured to scan just the cargo, and not the driver's cabin. 
This is the second X-ray machine provided for Dogharoun customs, which is the largest official land border crossing with Afghanistan for export-import of goods and equipment. It cross-checks 500-700 containers per day, as well as the entry and exit of thousands of Afghans, which signify the importance of this customs terminal to counter the flow of narcotics from Afghanistan, as well as other smuggled commodities.
