An integrated terminal operating system for enhancing the port security

As a vital link in the global supply chain, which dictates the movement and storage of cargo containers at the entry point of a seaport, a seaport terminal can have a profound impact on port security. In particular, a lack of business intelligence about containerised cargo flows coupled with the failure to inspect containerised cargo can cause serious security problems, because unmonitored cargo containers can be used as a tool for bringing illicit contents into the port of entry. To prevent or mitigate any illegal activities associated with containerised cargo flows, the authors propose an integrated terminal operating system (ITOS) that can trace and monitor every single movement and storage of incoming cargo containers, while coordinating and synchronising the entire terminal operations. In addition, the authors embed the ITOS within the business analytics framework, while formulating viable strategic options for enhancing the securities of terminal operating companies and their multiple stakeholders.
