Case Study: Port of Wilmington, Delaware, Keeps Timely Tabs on TWIC Validity with PIVCheck Plus by Codebench and Honeywell Pro-Watch Integration

Updated July 1, 2010

The Port of Wilmington, Delaware, leads the nation's ports in several categories: it's the number one port in North America for imports of fresh fruit, bananas, and orange juice concentrate. With approximately 800,000 square feet of chilled and freezer storage space available, plus 16,000 square feet of controlled atmosphere capability, it ranks as the nation's largest dockside cold storage facility. It's also the first and busiest port on the Delaware River, handling more than 4 million tons of cargo annually, including cattle, petroleum, autos and more, in addition to fruit.

The Port of Wilmington claims another first: In October 2007, it became the first port to introduce the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC). That's the smart credential mandated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act. And now, Wilmington has introduced another innovation: collecting data from TWIC credentials to be stored and used by its Honeywell Pro-Watch security management system, via middleware software, called PIVCheck Plus, from Codebench. Advantech, based in Dover, Del., was the integrator.
