Security is a priority at the Ports, and highly trained K-9’s and their handlers inspect each package of materials heading onto the ship, and apply a sticker giving the seal of approval for it to be loaded to the ships. Hallmark Stevedoring Company, a company who is in charge of making sure all of the containers and packages of materials make it on to the ship in a timely and efficient manor controls the tempo of the lift onto the ship like director of an orchestra.
