Port Security

JAXPORT's comprehensive security program is designed to meet mandates of the Federal "Maritime Transportation Security Act" (MTSA) of 2002. Even while featuring some of the nation's strictest port security measures, JAXPORT facilities remain among the most efficient in the South Atlantic.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that all of your employees, stevedores, and other support personnel for your company have been properly screened and credentialed. Visit the Access Control Center page for information about credential applications, hours/schedule, forms and tenant information.

JAXPORT's goal is to provide safe and secure port facilities for the efficient movement of cargo and passengers. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us to achieve this goal.


JAXPORT’s rigid security standards include the Federal Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program, which is administered by the Transportation Security Administration. The TWIC is required for access to all JAXPORT terminals.
