The Port of Longview is a secure port, as regulated by the United States Coast Guard.
Since September 11th, the Port has added security fencing, video surveillance and guards to man the Port 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Access to the Port is only granted to those conducting business who have a Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWIC) card. Anyone without a TWIC card must be escorted by security.
Apply for an Identification Card
TWIC is an acronym that stands for Transportation Worker Identification Credential. Each employee, vendor, longshoreman and customer requiring unescorted access to the secured areas of the Port must obtain a TWIC card from the Department of Homeland Security. Apply for a TWIC card.
Regular Staff Training
Port security is provided by a third-party contractor under the direct supervision of our Facility Security Officer. Security operates as outlined in our Coast Guard-approved and audited Facility Security Plan. Regular training and drills are conducted in accordance with Federal requirements to ensure the Port is safe and secure.
