CONTAINER SECURITY SYSTEMS

Having stressed that terminal operators should "consider security as equally important in product marketing as advertising and service promotion", the author highlights some of the more conventional security methods currently in use. He begins with a list of recommendations for fencing and lighting security storage areas, examines features of open and covered storage of cargo and gives suggestions for the storage of high-value "hot cargo". There are notes on vehicle storage and on the use of seals. Procedures are outlined for the release of valuable cargo, for container storage and processing within the security compound. Similar procedures are detailed for seaports and the paper closes with suggestions for berth security.
