The article focuses on the implementation of Transportation Work Identification Credential (TWIC) in the U.S. It notes that with TWIC, aside from having smart card checking in workers and visitors, there will be biometric readers. It highlights the Port of Los Angeles, California and Port of Savannah, Georgia that have installed a vascular biometric reader in lieu with TWIC. Furthermore, it states that ports in the country are testing the TWIC program-related technology.
