Thunder Bay port workers went back to class last week

Written by: NNL Staff on October 6, 2012.

THUNDER BAY – Over 75 Thunder Bay port workers went back to class last week in an ongoing effort to comply with increasingly stringent international security regulations, and to work to create a more secure port environment. Gathering at Lakehead University and at port facilities in Thunder Bay, participants including port managers, security officers and workers from across port operations completed a number of courses provided by Transport Canada recognized training provider MacDonnell Group.

“Our recent programs in Thunder Bay were some of the most efficient, comprehensive and interactive that I’ve delivered,” said seasoned trainer Jeffrey Jenkins, PMP, CD. “That is in large part as a result of the leadership shown by the port of Thunder Bay Port Authority, leadership that is needed to take Canadian maritime security efforts to the next level.”


Technology providers help seaports 'do more with less' on security front

by Paul Scott Abbott, Editor, AAPA Seaports Magazine

With the considerable evolution of technology over the near decade since the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2011, port officials are able to protect resources in highly effective, cost-efficient ways that would not have been readily available in pre-9/11 days.

Events such as the discovery in October of a plot that originated in Yemen to send bombs in toner cartridges shipped to the United States as air cargo have pointed up the frailty of the supply chain, the effectiveness of a combination of technology and intelligence, and the potential folly of kneejerk reactions -- such as a policy outlawing such air shipments of toner cartridges.

Leading providers to ports of security technology and training, in separate interviews with AAPA Seaports Magazine, noted how an integrated approach using networked solutions should give seaports what they need to protect facilities and meet U.S. Department of Homeland Security mandates without breaking the proverbial bank.
