Following the successful trial of an original order First Class Zollservice und Transportvermittlungs GmbH has made a further investment with a new purchase from Implant Sciences' Hamburg-based distributor, D-TeC System Consulting of their Quantum Sniffer(TM) H150 handheld explosives trace detector. First Class Zollservice, based in Raunheim south west of Frankfurt, has worked as customs clearance and air freight management services for two decades and recently expanded into the cargo security field.
The sniffers provide a mobile screening capability and First Class Zollservice rent them out to freight forwarders charging per item examined with the units installed in a suitable vehicle. Implant Sciences develops, manufactures and sells sophisticated sensors and systems for the security, safety and defence sector and its products are evaluated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The company's Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, Dr. Darryl Jones praised his latest customer's entrepreneurial skill saying:
"First Class Zollservice has been very innovative in identifying a new niche market which caters to smaller shippers for whom purchasing screening equipment is not cost effective. In providing screening as a service, this company is offering better economics to a new customer base. We believe that the non-radioactive design of our Quantum Sniffer trace detectors offers a number of opportunities in which we can gain further traction globally."
