The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) will require trucks serving the port to use RFID technology sometime next year, according to Truckinginfo.com.
The agency mandate will require each truck serving the port to be identified through its VIN number and other characteristics to enhance PANYNJ’s ability to identify vehicles that may potentially pose a security risk.
