Fully secured

Around the clock security

All ECT locations have around the clock security to prevent cargo theft and other criminal acts. The terminals are surrounded by fences, equipped with surveillance cameras and patrolled by security guards. Access to the terminals is tightly controlled and separate authorisation is needed for access to the offices and other buildings.

International standards

ECT is in full compliance with the global ISPS Code (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code) of the International Maritime Organisation that is designed to protect ports and ships against terrorism. ECT is also a participant in the US C-TPAT programme (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism), which serves a similar purpose.

Customs has awarded ECT the status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). As an AEO-certified company, ECT meets strict requirements regarding the security of sites and buildings, the solvency of the company as well as adherence to strict procedures and regulations. The AEO qualification process is an extensive procedure which is governed by European guidelines.
