RMPM Optimistic About Cooperation

Tuesday, June 25, 2002
On June 25, Dutch minister Gerrit Zalm and Robert Bonner, commissioner Customs Service USA, signed the so-called Declaration of Principles for the port of Rotterdam. The goal of this cooperation is to mutually exchange information aimed at identifying containers that carry a high risk. The Rotterdam Municipal Port Management (RMPM) is pleased with the proposed cooperation between the customs services of the Netherlands and the United States. The declaration will not only contribute to improving the level of in U.S. ports, but also in other ports. The RMPM considers the agreement a token of appreciation for its safety policy against organized crime. If a lot of ports actually join the Container Security Initiative proposed by the Americans, the safety/security of logistic chains around the world will be improved. The RMPM will gladly share its knowledge and experience with other ports.
