Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, there has been much discussion of the porous nature of borders and ports of entry in the United States and around the world. Ports of entry, particularly sea ports, are viewed as one of the most vulnerable targets for a terrorist attack. Due to the threat that infiltration of the containerized freight trade line poses, a number of port security initiatives and policies have been implemented both domestically and internationally. This timely project investigates a number of issues surrounding the container security issue. It examines the entire scope of containerized freight security at both the international and domestic levels. It also analyzes cooperation between agents in the United States and abroad, explores the domestic and international politics of port security, and provides an assessment of fifteen of the worlds sea ports. Ultimately, sheds light on the container security threat and the domestic and international responses that have emerged, as well as those steps that still must be taken.
