Security

The Port of Longview is a secure port, as regulated by the United States Coast Guard.

Upgraded Security


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 stands for Transportation Worker Identification Credentials. 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.
