TYSONS CORNER, VA, Dec. 1, 2016 —  The Customs and Border Protection agency has awarded Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) a potential $66 million delivery order to supply cargo and vehicle scanning systems as well as optional training and maintenance to support customs operations, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

Leidos said Tuesday it will provide 22 VACIS M6500 mobile scanners to CBP ports of entry throughout the country to help identify illegal materials in international trade.

“Given that CBP screens more than 67, 000 cargo containers each day, it is imperative that incoming cargo and vehicles are quickly evaluated with a high level of scrutiny, ” said Scott Gray, senior vice president of homeland security solutions at Leidos.
