The first phase of the security component of CTMP includes the design, development and integration of two separate solutions a Port Drayage Truck Registry (DTR) and a Truck Asset Management System (TMS).
DTR is a web-accessible registration system that captures important information about Licensed Motor Carriers (LMC), their trucks and drivers in order for then to qualify their compliance with port security requirements. TMS is an operations data tool that provides visibility of trucks performing drayage operations at the Port of Oakland. This combination of registration and in-transit visibility of drayage operations will deliver improved safety and security.
As part of the CTMP, the port is increasing its maritime safety, security awareness and general knowledge of trucking companies and operations conducted on port property. More than 220 LMCs with over 5,000 trucks have enrolled in the registry since its launch last April.
“The port’s truck registry is a user-friendly database so that it is easy for us to find the contact information we need and work in collaboration with local law enforcement if we have a report of suspicious behaviour,” said Mike O’Brien, the port’s facility security officer.
