WATERBORNE GOODS SURVEILLANCE-A PROPOSED APPROACH

THE CHICAGO AREA TRANSPORTATION STUDY (CATS) AND THE CHICAGO DEPARTMENT OF THE PORT OF CHICAGO DIRECTED CONJOINTLY A PORT SECURITY INVENTORY REVIEW DURING THE 1971 SHIPPING SEASON. THIS PILOT PROJECT WAS DESIGNED TO QUANTIFY THE MOVEMENT OF URBAN GOODS THROUGH NAVY PIER AND TO DEVELOP DATA PROCESSING METHODS ENCOMPASSING A THEFT CONTROL PROGRAM. THIS STUDY, ALSO, FOCUSED UPON PROCESSING PORT STATISTICS BY COMPUTERIZATION WHILE MONITORING LANDWARD PORT ACCESS NEEDS. TWO AREAS OF CONCERN WERE IDENTIFIED. (1) INCOMPLETE COMMODITY DESCRIPTIONS OR EXISTING TRADE DOCUMENTS PROVIDED INACURRACY IN CODING THE DOCUMENTS. (2) THE TIME LAPSE BETWEEN THE DATE EXPORT/IMPORT MOVEMENTS WAS TOO GREAT TO IDENTIFY RECENT AND CURRENT PILFERAGE.
