ESA Security Solutions has been contracted by Chania Port Fund to take over the security of the port facilities in Souda for one year. A team of security agents, specially certified to meet the Port’s specific requirements, carries out access control of passengers and vehicles, luggage sand hand-baggage screening as well as the overall surveillance of Souda Port through the Port Facilities Security Control Center.
Both partners aim at offering a fastest and smoothest service experience to cruise passengers arriving at Port of Souda, which during the past 3 years (2015 – 2017) has welcomed more than 230.000 passengers in a total of 229 cruise ship arrivals.
«Being the security provider for both the airport and the seaport, ESA is having a solid footprint on the touristic product of Chania. We look forward to upgrading security services provided to Port of Souda while supporting its strategic goal to evolve into a hub that connects the cruise with the airport as well as into a sea transport hub in the Southeastern Mediterranean Sea», said ο Panagiotis Gavathas, Commercial Director, ESA Security Solutions.
