Hong Kong’s largest cargo handler -- has enhanced its security operations with the introduction of two electric vehicles to enable security staff to increase the frequency of patrols, and respond to any incidents more quickly.

Security for the massive Hactl SuperTerminal 1 facility – the largest single cargo terminal in the world – is a major task involving some 260 staff deployed in various duties, including perimeter and premises patrols and guarding, and cargo scanning.

The environmentally-friendly electric vehicles are limited to 15 kph for safety reasons, but still significantly reduce travel times around the giant 174,600 sqm Hactl site, which has a perimeter of 1,850 m.

The vehicles are now used around the clock, and have proven a big hit with Hactl’s contract security staff, who view their introduction as further evidence of the company’s ongoing commitment to safety and security throughout its operations.

Says Andrew Sin, Hactl head of security: “We continue to invest in improving the robustness of all Hactl operations, including the vital area of security.

“The introduction of our mobile patrol vehicles has significantly increased our visible security presence throughout SuperTerminal1. We are making more efficient use of our patrol staff, speeding incident response and even improving our efficiency in dealing with related matters such as clamping of illegally parked vehicles.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
