DHS Official Outlines New Freight Security Concept

DHS program tries to find security and supply chain management secrets that retail industry knows

Jackson said that DHS has begun talks with some countries on potential pilot programs for Secure Freight. Rather than roll it all out at once, a pilot program would let the countries know what could work and then build on that, he said.

To work globally Secure Freight trading countries would need to develop a "minimum set of performance standards" from order to fulfillment that can be scored for risk, he said.
