CVO15: Fleet and Freight Security

This service package provides enhanced security for commercial vehicle fleets and freight. Internal and external alerts and advisories are monitored to identify potential threats to the safety and security of the fleet and freight. It provides for the planning and tracking of three aspects of commercial vehicle shipments. For each shipment, the commercial vehicle, the freight equipment, and the commercial vehicle driver are monitored for consistency with the planned assignment. Any unauthorized changes are determined by the Fleet and Freight Management Center and then the appropriate people and Centers are notified. As the freight is shipped and tracked, security and public safety agencies may also interrogate the freight container to determine if it has been breached and to identify container contents. Once a route has been assigned, changes must be coordinated. Commercial Vehicle Drivers are alerted to any changes in route from the planned route and given an opportunity to justify a rerouting. Any unauthorized or unexpected route changes by the Commercial Vehicle will register a route deviation alert with the Fleet and Freight Management Center, which can notify local public safety agencies of the route deviation when appropriate (e.g., if there is safety sensitive HAZMAT being carried). Freight managers may decide to take further action on the alerts and/or provide responses that explain that the alerts are false alarms. If no explanation is received, the Fleet and Freight Management Center may notify the Emergency Management Center.

Alerting and Advisory System Fleet and Freight Management Center alerts and advisories Moderate High Moderate
Large numbers of alerts and advisories may be supported by this flow, and while much of this information is eventually intended for public release, it could be misinterpreted. Better to keep confidential to the point where it is reformatted and presented in a fashion suitable to widespread distribution. It could include limited PII in incident descriptions, which also justifies obfuscation. Large numbers of alerts and advisories, if incorrectly reported, could have widespread effects on the management of the surface transportation system. If the scale is small this might be reduced to MODERATE. Should be reported in timely and consistent fashion to enable proper system management. Failure to receive this flow could lead to significant mobility degradation.
Commercial Vehicle Check Equipment Emergency Management Center commercial vehicle incident notification Moderate High Moderate
This data contains all of the information regarding the commercial vehicle incident. This could include personal information regarding persons involved in the incident. It could also include sensitive information regarding cargo contents or route deviations that might imply legal issues. Even a minor discrepancy in this data could have a significant effect, for instance if a HAZMAT is involved. Data describing commercial vehicle incidents must be timely or emergency assets may be improperly tasked, which has a significant cost. Could be HIGH.
Commercial Vehicle Check Equipment Freight Equipment container seal interrogation Low Moderate Low
The presence of electronic locks will most likely be observable by looking at the cargo doors and the other information is not sensitive in nature. The container seal status returned after this interrogation will not have a HIGH integrity, as such is interrogation does not require a HIGH integrity. If the integrity of the container seal status is somehow possible to raise to a HIGH, then this could also have a HIGH integrity. If this interrogation is not received, the system will not broadcast its Container Seal Status. However, there are multiple chances for this data to be transmitted and received. Additionally, if this information is never received the vehicle will be handled in the same way that it was prior to the implementation of this system.

Freight Equipment Commercial Vehicle Check Equipment container manifest Moderate Moderate Low
The contents of a freight container may not necessarily be something that should be made public. If it is known that a container is carrying high value objects, it may be the target of theft. Due to the nature of this information, it is impossible to be certain that what it states is true, thus it cannot have a HIGH integrity. However, it should be as accurate as possible. If the vehicle is not pre-approved it will be handled by border security. Therefore, it is not clear that there is any security risk from failures of availability; more availability allows the operator to benefit from the processing efficiency gains associated with this application but any level of availability is acceptable from a security point of view.
