Law Enforcement Partners

Law enforcement partners at PortMiami include U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue departments, among others working to achieve a shared, united mission.

Travelers should consult their travel agent, airline, cruise line or Transportation Security Administration for specific security measures and documentation requirements.


C-TPAT Certified

U.S. Customs and Border Protection certified PortMiami as a C-TPAT. C-TPAT is recognized as a worldwide supply chain security initiative and one of the most effective means of providing the highest level of cargo security. Thanks to C-TPAT certification at PortMiami cargo containers are processed faster, thus translating into substantial cost savings for our cargo terminal partners, freight forwarders, and trucking companies.


Radar Surveillance and Automated Vessel Identification System

The system consists of the integration of a coastal tracking system and state-of-the art radar technology. The coastal tracking system can detect ship-mounted transponders to identify and locate vessels by electronically exchanging data with nearby ships and Vessel Traffic Stations. The radar surveillance integrates both radar and automated vessel identification data to provide the highest level of surveillance at PortMiami. Pan-Tilt-Zoom Day/Night cameras are strategically installed at off-port locations to provide a wide-range visual of tracked targets. Additionally, the system is integrated into the Port’s Berth Planning System, where early arrivals and late departures are automatically posted when vessels traverse the entrance channel.


Video Management System

Conversion of the Port’s Analog CCTV system to a versatile digital video system designed for the high-end security market that provides high resolution video, sophisticated video analytics and real-time frame-rate performance, with the ability to change frame-rate, resolution and image quality according to schedules, or detected events.
