RFID for Port Security

JERSEY CITY -- Rep. Bob Menendez (NJ-13), Chairman of the Democratic Task Force on Homeland Security, Member of the Select Committee on Homeland Security, and senior New Jersey Member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, today joined Joseph Assante, President of the Port Newark Container Terminal, Richard M. Larrabee, Director of Port Commerce, Port Authority NY/NJ, Jan Pellens, CEO of the Port of Antwerp, Lance Trebesch, Executive Director of the Strategic Council on Security Technology, to announce the extension of Smart and Secure Tradelanes infrastructure to the Port of New York-New Jersey. Smart and Secure Tradelanes (SST), launched in July, deploys electronic bolt seals and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems integrated with web-based software to improve transportation container security and productivity through real-time information alerts.

"In the wake of September 11th, the need for secured ports has become more evident. Our ports in New Jersey serve not only as a center for global trade, but as an economic engine for our region, providing over 229,000 jobs and $25 billion in commerce," said Menendez. "This is why I am proud to join in today's announcement of the Smart and Secure Tradelanes initiative. It is a major step toward protecting our homeland from the threat of unsecured cargo entering our ports."

SST is an initiative to improve container security, utilizing a collection of interoperable technologies, ranging from Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) electronic seals and readers, GPS tracking systems, sensor and biometric technologies and gamma-ray image scanners - all seamlessly linked to software through the Universal Data Appliance Protocol (UDAP). Initially funded and driven by the world's largest port operators, SST is closely coordinated with the U.S. Customs Container Security Initiative (CSI), Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), and the U.S. Department of Transportation's Transportation Security Agency's (TSA) maritime security initiatives, such as Operation Safe Commerce.

"As the senior New Jersey Member on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I've worked hard to ensure that port safety and security are at the forefront of measures to protect our homeland from terrorist threats. But we must also ensure that we can secure our ports while protecting our port economy -- efficiency is key," added Menendez.

SST was first announced in July on the Pacific Coast. Today's announcement marks the first installation of the SST infrastructure at sea ports on the Atlantic Coast, which eventually will be linked with seaports of Antwerp (Belgium), Rotterdam, and Felixstowe (UK) in Europe, where cargo containers are shipped into the United States. Further extensions and milestone updates of Tradelanes on both U.S. Coasts, and in Asia and Europe, will be announced in the coming weeks.

"With the help of these critical partnerships between our ports, our transportation agencies, our port community, and programs such as SST, we can protect the cargo that travels through our ports, while providing for the continued success and efficiency of our port," concluded Menendez.


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an enabler of tracking processes in the extended value chain.
