Baltimore port to implement electronic ID system
Mar 23, 2006 12:27 PM
Beginning April 1, the Port of Baltimore MD will become the first port on the East Coast to implement the eModal Trucker Check security system, according to information from the Maryland Motor Truck Association (MMTA).
Trucking companies wanting access to the Port of Baltimore must have registered their truck, driver, and company information at emodal.com.
The system will instantly validate a company’s presence at the port and either allow or deny it access. The software will be initially installed only at the Seagirt Marine Terminal, however, the port administration has plans to install it at the Dundalk Marine Terminal later this year, MMTA said.
