Security officers APM Terminals Lazaro

Security

Higher security is offered on the Michoacán state railroad, versus rail operations in Puebla, Veracruz and Colima, related to cargo rail robbery incidences. In Mexico, the annual robbery incidents have experienced a 5% decrease compared to 2017.

Railroad police and canine units work closely with local and state law enforcement, U.S. Customs and the Department of Homeland Security to combat crime. This involves a network of full-time and contract agents; canine units; guard points; guards on trains; patrol vehicles; and a 24/7 security desk and communications hub.

VACIS scanning

VACIS scanning for containers at the Laredo/Nuevo Laredo gateway and the Port of Lazaro Cardenas, uses x-ray imaging and radiation scanning to intercept weapons, nuclear material and other contraband hidden in containers coming into the terminal. The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) and ISPS certification means that cargo transfer from vessel to rail is handled securely within our terminal.

Upon departure from APMT Lazaro Cardenas, block trains proceed directly and without stops to the US border crossing at Laredo, Texas, and then to Kendleton (Houston). On arrival in Houston, cargo is unloaded from the train in compliance with C-TPAT protocols. High-speed digital imaging systems and monitoring of train cars is employed along the route using rail inspection portals.
