From smoking devices to drugs: How ICA is tackling an increase in contraband in air cargo | Video

(Updated: )

From smoking devices hidden in boxes of toy blocks to drugs concealed in packages declared as clothes, more contraband is being detected in air cargo amid the COVID-19 pandemic, said the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). A total of 19 million air cargo consignments were cleared at the Changi Airfreight Centre and Airport Logistics Park between January and September, an increase of about 60 per cent from the same period last year.
