Holt Logistics, operator of Gloucester Terminals LLC in Gloucester City, has selected a Washington state company to provide identification card readers at the facility.
Intellicheck Mobilisa Inc. of Port Townsend, Wash., was awarded the contract for its TWIC Plus IM2610 readers, it said in a news release. They will be installed by July 31, Intellicheck Mobilisa said.
The contract also includes installation of an on-site server with visitor registration modules that will register visitor and vendor cards and licenses, the company said, which will add an extra layer of security to terminal operations.
“Holt Logistics manages some of the most efficient port, warehouse and logistics facilities in the country, in order to deliver a rapid transfer of cargo,” Dr. Nelson Ludlow, CEO of Intellicheck Mobilisa, said in the release. “Its Gloucester Terminals facility has the largest refrigerated capacity of any terminal in the United States. We are grateful that Holt Logistics has chosen our TWIC readers to serve as an added layer of protection to the security at this facility, one of the busiest and most important in the nation.”
TWIC cards are biometric IDs for port facility workers.
