Use Technology to Quickly Pre-screen High-risk Containers ( X-Ray, Radiation Devices, etc.). Develop Secure and “Smart” Containers (electronic sensors and seals that will indicate if containers have been tampered with). CSI:  CSI Why Should CSI be introduced throughout the world? Prescreen prior to export. Benefits of CSI: Enhanced Safety and Security Competitive Advantage Insurance Deterrence Push our Zone of Security Outward CSI Screened Cargo will Speed through US Port of Arrival. CSI Teams will relay information to US. CSI:  CSI World Customs Organization (WCO) June 28, 2002 passed resolution that will enable ports in all 161 of the member nations to develop programs using CSI principles.
