In a bid to tackle port pilferage and enhance security measures, Five Star Logistics Terminal has unveiled a state-of-the-art automated access control system at Tin Can Island Port. This innovative system, equipped with facial recognition and smart card technology, aims to streamline port access, gather user data, and combat security challenges within the terminal.

Mr. Jaysing Kamthe, Terminal Manager of Five Star Logistics Limited, expressed satisfaction with the implementation of the automated access control, highlighting its significance in improving efficiency and service delivery. Since assuming operations at the terminal in 2006, this development represents a significant milestone in achieving their long-standing goal of enhancing access control at the port.

Only individuals with valid business at the terminal and activated access cards will be permitted entry, effectively restricting movement within the premises and enhancing cargo delivery processes.

While discussing the cost implications of the new service, Mr. Kamthe emphasized the terminal’s commitment to facilitating trade and improving service delivery, assuring that access card fees will be reasonable.

Tin-Can Island Port Customs Area Controller, Comptroller Dera Nnadi mni, urged stakeholders to support the initiative and collaborate with the terminal operator to address any potential challenges. He emphasized the importance of embracing innovation to enhance port operations and maintain security standards.

Port Manager of Tin-Can Island Port, Mr. Sylvester Egede, commended Five Star Terminal for its pioneering efforts and encouraged other terminal operators to adopt similar security measures. He stressed the significance of automation in generating data and ensuring the efficiency and security of port operations.

The launch event, attended by various port stakeholders, provided an opportunity for participants to familiarize themselves with the terminal’s e-services and test the newly implemented access control system. As Five Star Terminal sets a new standard for port security and management, stakeholders are encouraged to embrace innovation for the collective advancement of the maritime industry.
