The Maritime Transportation Security Act
 for workers who need access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime facilities and vessels.

The Transportation Worker Identification Credential, also known as TWIC®, is required by the Maritime Transportation Security Act for workers who need access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime facilities and vessels. TSA conducts a security threat assessment (background check) to determine a person’s eligibility and issues the credential. U.S. citizens and immigrants in certain immigration categories may apply for the credential. Most mariners licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard also require a credential. Regarding card usage and facility access requirements, please contact the U.S. Coast Guard.

Having this credential means that we have passed the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) security threat assessment (background check) and are cleared for access to American military installations, docks and other security sensitive areas.

U.s. port history

There are over 360 commercial ports in the U.S. alone, and more than 800 ports worldwide open for shipping. Ports serve as an absolute important part of the United States’ supply chain infrastructure. this is particularly in their specialized roles of cargo and container handling at dedicated container terminals. These functions are crucial for the smooth operation of logistics and manufacturing sectors.

Many American ports are known for being the only port in their region equipped to handle specific types of cargo, making them indispensable links in the trade network. For instance, facilities like those in the Garden City Terminal might specialize in certain types of cargo, making it a primary port for those types of goods. In terms of sheer volume, some locations distinguish themselves as the busiest port in container volume in the country.

Container terminals within the ports are highly specialized facilities designed to handle an ever-increasing volume of goods, thereby supporting manufacturing industries that rely on just-in-time delivery models. Here, cargo terminals come into play, allowing for the rapid movement of raw materials to factories and finished products to markets. We-Haul RV Transport wants to make shipping of your campers, cargo trailers, fifth wheels and any other trailer you may have easy and an enjoyable experience when getting your property to the port.
