Know Before You Go
The SJPC’s facilities, Broadway and Balzano Marine Terminals, are regulated under the federal Maritime Transportation Security Act. A Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) is required for access to our facilities. Below are the minimum security requirements for our terminals. To obtain a TWIC from the federal government, visit the Transportation Security Agency’s website at tsa.gov. Click here for basic TWIC information. The SJPC also extends an opportunity to known companies and organizations to receive status as TWIC escorts in our facilities through our sponsorship and training program.
