Security is fundamental in our operation. Each of the terminals has the latest surveillance systems, closed circuit television and security equipment. Because of this, US Customs endorsed COMPAS Cartagena's protection framework as the benchmark for the development of the BASC security standard at the global level.
COMPAS is also a member of the Port Security Program, made up of the Colombian Attorney General's Office, the Anti-narcotics Police and the US Embassy, and it has the support of the French Embassy.
COMPAS has received the Colombian Security Council Award to Management in Occupational Health on four occasions (2003, 2006, 2008 and 2010) and the SURATEP Excellence Award in 2004.
It was the first organization to be chosen as a security prototype in Latin America by Business Alliance for Secure Commerce, a program led by US Customs to block drug shipments through commercial shipping.
