Certified ISPS Code Compliant
Adopted by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), ISPS Code is an international framework through which ships and port facilities must operate to detect and deter international terrorism, for which we have gained certification and compliance with since June 2004. To ensure effective security measures are maintained and improved, we conduct quarterly security drills and annual exercises in a simulated large-scale incident jointly with the port authority, the marine department, the local police, and emergency services.
Truck Driver Identification
As a gateway port with a large volume of containers and trucks moving in and out of the port area, we must identify truck drivers quickly to ensure a secure and seamless process for the receipt and delivery of containers at terminal check in-gates. Hutchison Ports Thailand has integrated citizen identity card readers to our terminal operating system as one of the controlling access measures so that we can identify truck drivers quickly and efficiently in our system. This takes only 3 seconds per transaction which causes no delay to our gate operations.
