Sea ports remain the most viable access point for international trade. Billions of tonnes of cargo and millions of passengers traverse the oceans each year with over 90% of trade moving through the major ports and sea lanes.

In order to ensure the safety and security of that vital economic blood line, individual ports are responsible for the protection of cargo, people and property. However, the often large sizes of ports and the proliferation of potential threats means that this cannot be achieved with guards and fences alone.

To reduce costs, save vital manpower and overall enhance security measures, technology is key; smart access points, integrated surveillance and tracking networks, computer systems and collaborative training and preparedness allow port authorities and port facility managers to properly defend and manage the sea ports and their importance to global trade.

Our 8th Annual Port Security conference will take place on the 19th and 20th June 2017 and will bring together major sea port security operators alongside world leading solution providers to find the right solutions to the most important security challenges faced at major container ports.
