Cadec Corp has joined the Freight Transportation Security Consortium (FTSC). With more than 25 member companies, the FTSC has agreed to work together to establish common standards for security-related messaging and data encryption for GPS location devices that track tank trucks and tank railcars used to carry hazardous materials.

Among objectives of the standards-setting effort is central monitoring of the nearly 200,000 assets in the hazmat supply chain. The consortium believes that widespread implementation of location and sensoring devices will reduce the risk of hijacking and tampering by terrorists, and that a central monitoring system will enable rapid and effective communication with police, fire, and other first-responders across the United States.
