TWIC now acceptable at military bases
The Transportation Worker Identification Credential recently became acceptable ID for trucks visiting military bases.



In early December, the U.S. Department of Defense released a brief, available here, that outlines its new acceptance of TWIC at military bases.

More than 1.4 million workers have enrolled in TWIC Ė the biometric card required for port employees, longshoremen, mariners, truckers and others who need unescorted access to secure areas of ports. They have background checks before being issued cards with their biometric data and residency documentation.

Itís been a pricey, complicated process and one that irked seasoned truckers from the get-go. The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association has been critical of several TSA processes during the TWIC rollout, including the price of enrollment and the ability of foreign nationals to access ports without background checks required by TWIC applicants from the U.S. One filing of the Associationís comments on TWIC can be found here.
