Smart Card & EDI

Smart Card Security System


As a key maritime port, Westports adheres to strict border and marine security practices. The Smart Card Security System is a security solution that utilizes the smart card technology. Smart cards are issued as an identification and authentication card for all forwarding agents, freight forwarders and hauliers.

The adoption of this technology reduces the risk of loss and theft of containers, thus adding a greater level of assurance to cargo owners. It also enhances security in preventing document forgery as well as authenticates all entries and exits at the port.
