November 7, 2006 San Francisco, CA Joseph Alioto, Vice President of European Sales & Development of the VeriTainer Corporation, will be speaking on "Security in Container Shipping" at the prestigious Freight Select International conference on Thursday, November 9, 2006 at the Rotterdam Cruise Terminal at 3:30P.M.


"Presenting at Freight Select will allow us the opportunity to introduce our new scanning technology that has tested effective and efficient in the container industry," says Joseph Alioto. "I am looking forward to being surrounded by other professionals in the freight industry, because we will have the opportunity to share critical information on the growing international concern of container shipping security."


In the wake of 9/11, CEO John Alioto founded the VeriTainer Corporation upon recognizing the nation's vulnerability to nuclear attack via shipping containers. Since its establishment in 2003, VeriTainer has been developing technology to detect radioactive material smuggled in by shipping containers.


VeriTainer is at the forefront of technology innovation, creating radioactive scanning devices for the next generation. Upon successful completion of pre-certification protocols, VeriTainer will begin to sell its radiation detection services to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy, and the container shipping industry.


In accordance with new port security legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President last month, the SAFE Port Act of 2006 will require radiation scanning of 100% of all container traffic coming into the U.S. by the end of 2007. VeriTainer has been developing efficient scanning technology to meet these standards since its launch in 2003.


The VeriSpreader is a scanning device that will monitor every container passing through a U.S. shipping terminal without delaying the flow of commerce. This is executed with the scanning taking place during the regular handling of the containers by container crane spreaders. This new device has already been successful during initial testing in 2005 at the Port of Oakland. The VeriSpreader proved to be both successful and efficient in scanning 6,529 containers as fast as they could be loaded to, or unloaded from, a containership.


"The safety and security of our nation's ports should not be left at risk. This multi-faceted test makes it clear that VeriTainer has the necessary tools to meet this need with technology that can effectively detect dangerous radiation," states Alioto.
