Seaports and Airports Security
With over 4,000 seaports across the globe, ports remain attractive targets for burglary and terrorist organisations. A strike on a large port facility could cripple a nation’s economy, impact world stock markets, and cause significant casualties and environmental damage.
This, together with a growing volume of freight and traffic, means that there is an increasing demand for astute, specialist security services. The challenge facing port operators is to find the optimal security plan that not only matches budget and operational requirements but also complies with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) and other regulatory requirements.
For over a decade ASA has been working with customs, port authorities and port operators to deliver specialist security services to seaports across Nigeria
ASA works with its clients to find the right solution to complement their strategy, meeting both budgetary and compliance obligations. As a result, ASA has been responsible for the rollout of new security systems across Nigeria.
ASA offers a complete project management service, from consultation through to planning, design, and installation of security systems. Services include auditing and reviews of any existing systems, where a dedicated project manager will be tasked with evaluating the financial, operational, and contractual aspects of any project to ensure full compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards.
From inception to completion, whether making improvements to existing equipment or implementing new systems, ASA will assist the client to maximize benefits by optimising the use of technology and existing infrastructure.
