Marine Security of Hazardous Chemical Cargo
By the Library of Congress
2005

(2005) Marine shipments of hazardous chemical cargo may be attractive terrorist targets because of their large volume and inherent toxicity or flammability.

The agency has developed port security plans addressing how to deploy federal, state, and local resources to prevent terrorist attacks.
