MDI to Help Dominican Republic with Port Security

Initial order with RNTT to focus on securing ports, cargo protection, worker identification


There is great political oversight on this program from the USA, Mexico and other Latin American governments seeking similar solutions to existing trade barriers. The US Ambassador to the Dominican Republic has been one of the RNTT program's biggest endorsers, on behalf of the potential of the program to streamline trade, decrease container screening requirements and add efficiencies to total transit time and costs. It is the ambassador's goal to provide the most geographically desirable manufacturing supply chain for the United States.

"In regards to data collection and management reporting, the potential long-term scale of this program is unprecedented and could rival the largest deployments ever undertaken by any access control manufacturer in history," stated J. Collier Sparks, CEO and President of MDI, Inc. "ID Corp is a very technical and accomplished integration firm. Raul and his team are an amazing group of technicians with the capabilities to take this high-profile system wherever RNTT officials would like it to go. We look forward to working with them through both MDI Security Systems and Global Systems Solutions to make this project an international success story," he added.
