As part of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), the Department of Homeland Security has established a Chemicals of Interest (COI) list of over 300 chemical that pose “significant adverse consequences for human life or health.” The CFATS further identifies three security issues related to chemicals:
- Release: Toxic, flammable, or explosive chemicals or materials that, if released from a facility, have the potential for significant adverse consequences for human life or health.
- Theft or Diversion: Chemicals or materials that, if stolen or diverted, have the potential to be misused as weapons or easily converted into weapons using simple chemistry, equipment or techniques, in order to create significant adverse consequences for human life or health.
- Sabotage: Chemicals or materials that, if mixed with readily available materials, have the potential to create significant adverse consequences for human life or health.
Product transportation security should be viewed as an extension of facility security. The TrakLok System integrates access control, GPS tracking, and remote alarm system to measures already being used for your in-transit COI shipments.
The TrakLok System has two parts consisting of the GeoLok physical locking device and the TrakLog web portal. The GeoLok is a robust physical locking device that serves as a deterrent and physical protection against unwanted access to cargo. Installation on the trailer is straight forward, does not require a key or tools, and takes less than 20 seconds. The keyless system eliminates key custody issues. Access control is maintained by using location and time based access codes.
The TrakLog web portal is used for configuration of defensive measures such as geofences, access codes, and alert notifications. Alert notifications for unauthorized access and attempted tampering events can be configured for the appropriate people based on your security process. The TrakLog web portal is a convenient way to monitor the progress and status of your cargo.
