Safety and Health

Container terminals help keep the nation’s economy moving. That's why they are regulated in a manner similar to airports and, as a result, are the most secure maritime facilities. These facilities move containerized items from one mode of transportation to another. 

Terminal Security

The Department of Homeland Security and Coast Guard must approve the Port's Maritime Security facility plan. The plan is reviewed annually. Security features include:

  • U.S. Customs and Border Protection
  • Harbor Police Department
  • FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force
  • Federally regulated entry to premises
  • Security cameras
  • Access controls
  • Cargo tracking from origin to destination
