Truck Escort Procedures

AA Truck Escort Pass is issued at ASPA Truck Control for all arriving cargo trucks that do not have TWICs. General cargo trucks will proceed directly to the Main Gate with their escort and continue on to the destination designated by the receiving stevedore.

Freezer trucks will proceed without an escort to the holding area at the south side of the Hope Overpass, where they will be met by an escort and continue to the Main Gate and on to the freezer facility.

At the completion of loading/unloading, the escort will escort the cargo truck back to the Main Gate and complete the releasing paperwork.

U.S. Coast Guard regulations require that escorting must be accomplished by side-by-side accompaniment and requires continuous visual contact by the escorting individual for the duration of your visit.

You will receive a copy of the Truck Escort Pass when you depart the ASPA Main Gate and you should check to be sure information shown on the Truck Escort Pass is accurate.

All ASPA licensed Transportation Services, Guard Services and Cargo Handler are authorized to escort cargo trucks at such rates as they may impose for their service. ASPA does not provide escorts for cargo trucks.
