Did you know? Nedap Identification Systems offers innovative vehicle identification systems for seaport security. This technology provides seamless monitoring of vehicle and driver activities in and around secured areas and facilities such as sea ports and terminals.

Ship and Port Facility Security
With the introduction of the ISPS Code (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code) in 2004, seaports need to comply with increased security regulations. Access to secured areas and facilities should be controlled at any time to prevent access of unauthorized people en vehicles. For that reason all employees and contractors on the port facilities wear a personal ID badge and vehicles are equipped with a transponder.

ISPS is a comprehensive regulation that was implemented after 11th of September 2001 on insist of the USA as supplement to the international ship security contracts (SOLAS). The content of the ISPS Code demands for the port management and all companies on the port premises to comply with strict person and vehicle access control for the entire port premises and additionally demands for extra security measures for security related installations on the port.

Monitoring of truck and driver activities
In the context of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, Nedap offers innovative solutions for seamless monitoring of all truck and driver activities. For example Nedap automates the process of identifying trucks and containers at sea ports and terminals when these passing pass through the facility access points. This includes fast and highly reliable truck identification at entry and exit points.
