Efficiency and security are often regarded as opposing factors in transport operations, with increased security causing decreased effi- ciency. The use of information technology holds the promise of enabling improved efficiency in freight transport operations and this article suggests and elaborates on the proposition that ‘‘An increased focus on efficiency will result in improved security for carrier operations.’’ The research for this article involved a literature review, the collection of empirical data through one in-depth case study and elaboration on a proposition through a field pilot implementation. The selected focus was carrier operations in connection with port terminals carrying out RoRo operations on trailers. The article explores and describes how measures to increase efficiency result in increased security.
