    I’m not sure you can do that. They have port pass you can get for $20, but not sure it’s applicable to CMVs.

    I used to bring trailers out of the port to their staging area when one of my co-workers that didn’t have a TWIC was picking up at the same time I was.

    Was $100 for New Orleans port.. that was a couple years ago, I had one, just heard the cost, probably about the same.
    Sometimes waited 2-6 hours had 1-2 people riding in cab for 10-20 trucks without Twic

    Yep. I've been escorted at NJ, Baltimore and Nolo I believe. At least 3 different ports. I know it's a wait I just can't remember the payment process.
    Maybe this is the nudge to get the pass. I think last I looked I had to make an appointment for the fingerprints and I got an attitude lol...
