Dear Customer and Friends of the Port
Re: TWIC Alert- Entire Port of Wilmington, Delaware Reverting
to a Restricted Area
Effective Monday, June 17, 2013, in accordance with Coast
Guard requirements, the Port of Wilmington/DSPC will revert to an
entirely restricted area. Therefore, all non-TWIC holders
requiring access to the Port of Wilmington will need a certified
TWIC Escort while on the port. Also, effective Monday, June 17,
2013, the DSPC will suspend the $30.00 day-pass fee for non-TWIC
truck drivers until further notice.
All non-TWIC holders will use lane 6 at the Port's Main Gate between
the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday to obtain an
escort. After 3:00 PM and on weekends, the non-TWIC holders will
proceed to lane 4. They will be directed to the hiring hall parking
lot adjacent to the Main Gate to await their escort.
Gettier Security is the certified TWIC Escort vendor used by the
Port of Wilmington. They will be on-site during normal business
hours Monday through Friday to provide the federally mandated
escorting. If not onsite or if needed after hours or if you have
questions regarding their fee schedule for escorting they can be
reached at (302) 652-2700.
A non-TWIC holder may be escorted by anyone who is a Port of
Wilmington/DSPC - Trained escort card holder; otherwise, non-TWIC
holders will be required to hire Gettier Service as its escort.
Please refer any questions to Jerry Custis, DSPC Security Manager at
(302) 472-7817 or Gerardo Hernandez, DSPC Security Supervisor at
