We are delighted to welcome our newest Associate Member Thruvision to our member network. Thruvision bring with them some really exciting technology which can revolutionise the way risk is managed in distribution and logistic sites globally.
Since 2017, Thruvision has developed and successfully commercialised a new type of people screening technology for use in loss prevention applications in distribution centres and fulfilment centres.
Based on patented technology, and intended to address the shortcomings of handheld metal detectors, Thruvision’s solution allows customers to screen for metallic and non-metallic items concealed under a person’s clothing at distances up to 10 feet. By eliminating the need for physical pat-downs of employees, the Thruvision system reduces health and safety risks due to COVID-19 by providing screening at a distance that exceeds CDC guidelines. The Thruvision system emits no radiation; instead, it detects when a concealed object is blocking a person’s natural heat energy. It accurately shows the size, shape and location of a concealed object, regardless of the material, without revealing any information about the person’s gender or anatomy. As distribution centers become central to many retailers omnichannel strategies, organized retail criminals are increasingly targeting DCs. As a result, a growing number of firms have deployed Thruvision for employee screening and loss prevention applications, including Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Seattle Tacoma International Airport (SEA), LaGuardia Airport (LGA) SONY, CEVA Logistics and Fanatics.
Alex Brundle the VP of Profit Protection Sales said ‘’Thruvision are excited to partner with the NBCS, and will bring additional benefits to NBCS members that will enhance security at all distribution and logistics sites unlike any solution or technology seen before. Thruvision is proven to reduce theft, improve security practice, speed up checks and enhance operations in the UK and across the World’’.
Addressing the urgent need for “safe distance” people security screening in the COVID era, Thruvision is uniquely capable of detecting metallic and non-metallic items including weapons, explosives and contraband items that are hidden under clothing, at distances between 10 and 25 feet. Using patented passive terahertz technology, Thruvision completely removes the need for physical “pat-downs” and has been vetted and approved by the US Transportation Security Administration for surface transportation. Operationally deployed in 20 countries around the world, Thruvision is used for aviation security, retail supply chain loss prevention, customs and border control, and public area security. The company has offices in Washington DC, and Oxford, UK. To schedule a demonstration or for more information, please visit www.thruvision.com.
