Truck drivers and others seeking clearances to access the San Pedro Bay port complex can sign up for the Transportation Worker Identification Credential, the Clean Truck Program and other official programs at a convenient, one-stop event designed to provide help for truckers at the Port of Long Beach from May 24-26.

Drivers also will be able to sign up for radio frequency identification tags that are needed in the port complex and for the Port of Long Beach’s Truck Alert notification system, which provides real-time text message updates on traffic issues in the Harbor District.

The Port of Long Beach is hosting the event in partnership with the Transportation Security Administration and the identity certification company IDEMIA.

“Truck drivers are an essential link in the supply chain and we want to give them every opportunity to obtain access to the Port,” said Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero. “Our collaboration with the TSA and IDEMIA will help truckers move cargo more quickly through the Port.”

“We’re happy to accommodate the trucking community by bringing the registration process directly to the Port,” said Long Beach Harbor Commission President Steven Neal. “We hope this event provides a convenient and easy way to get the clearances they need.”

The “four-in-one” event is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday-Thursday, May 24-26, at the Port of Long Beach Terminal Access Center, 1265 Harbor Ave., Long Beach (southwest corner of Harbor Avenue and West Anaheim Street). Free tacos will be available to participants from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, while supplies last.

TWIC appointments and pre-enrollment are available at Click New Enrollment, complete the information and in Step 9 – Select Appointment Location, choose “Pop Up: Port of Long Beach, 5/24-5/26.”
