Port of Miami (safety and security)
The Port of Miami is now recognized as one of Florida's leading ports in safety and security.
Cutting-edge technology and progressive procedures are in place that provide heightened levels of protection and, at the same time, support compliance with port business policies.
Partners in this comprehensive initiative include: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, Miami-Dade Police and Fire-Rescue Departments and others working to achieve a shared, united mission.
These highly efficient efforts are actually helping to move legitimate commerce through the Port in a faster, more seamless and cost-effective manner than ever before.
For example, the Port of Miami, working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, was the first port in the Southeast to install radiation portal monitors, or RPMs, a state-of-the-art inspection technology that bolsters security without impeding the flow of cargo.
The Port of Miami has one of the industry's most technologically advanced cargo gate facilities, integrating security functions, such as access control and credentialing, with business processes, including permitting and accounting. A combination of trendsetting software and hardware components produces faster processing times and, while ensuring compliance with Port business policies at the 16-lane cargo complex.
Long lines of waiting trucks may be common at other ports, but not at the Port of Miami, where processing times of less than two minutes are typical for effective completion of all security and financial procedures.
