MITIE to provide security services for the Port of Felixstowe

Mitie Security : 26 November, 2008  (Application Story)
Under new contract for providing port security, MITIE will work with the port police to provide a safe and secure container terminal
Following a competitive tender, MITIE, the strategic outsourcing and asset management company has been awarded a significant contract to provide security services at the Port of Felixstowe, part of the Hutchison Port Holdings Group.

Under the three-year contract, MITIE are working in support of the port's own police force to create a safe and secure environment for all staff and visitors at one of Europe's largest container terminals.

The team of over 60 officers are responsible for controlling access points to the port, undertaking vehicle searches and for providing 24 hour patrols across the 150 hectare site to meet the requirements laid down by the Department for Transport.

The success in winning the security contract further enhances MITIE's presence in the aviation and transport sectors as well as at the Port of Felixstowe where it already provides a range of catering services.

Tony Medhurst, who heads up MITIE's transport security team, commented: "The provision of effective security at UK ports is essential in protecting the critical national infrastructure. We're delighted to be working with the local management team and the Port of Felixstowe to support them in creating a safe, secure environment for all staff and visitors. This success reinforces our capabilities of working in DfT regulated environments"
