AAPA: $4 billion needed to protect ports, supply chain security

The American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) has identified nearly $4 billion in “crucial” port and supply chain security needs over the next decade, according to a new report. In the fourth edition of its “The State of Freight” report, the AAPA recommends refocusing the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Port Security Grant Program to “better meet the security infrastructure needs of publicly owned commercial seaports and related maritime operations,” AAPA officials said in a press release.
