What is a TWIC Certified Driver?
At Evan Transportation, we only higher the most well qualified drivers to run our rigs, which is why many of our drivers are TWIC certified. Not only does this inform us as to the quality of the driver, a TWIC certification also opens up new shipping options for drivers. Here’s how.
TWIC is an acronym for Transportation Worker Identification Credential. Drivers who possess this credential are permitted to gain unescorted access to secure areas and vessels regulated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act. The intent of the act, which was made law in 2002, is to increase security at all of the nation’s ports. Therefore, in order to gain access to secure areas, drivers need TWIC certification. This is especially important for inter-modal transportation, which involves offloading cargo from ships at the port and loading it onto trucks for land transportation.
As an operator in the mid-Atlantic region, Evan Transportation does a lot of
inter-modal shipping due to the high number of ports on the east coast. Therefore it is important for our drivers to have TWIC certification in order for them to get where they need to go. If you need to ship something, you can guarantee that Evan Transportation will get it to and from its destination hassle-free.
Evan Transportation was founded in 1992 by Jerry Wolfarth, who at the time had over 25 years of experience in the trucking and transportation industry. The initial operation consisted of a few trucks and drivers who were dedicated and professional. The goal of the company was to provide excellent, dependable service.
