The award is in recognition of more than 30 years’ dedication to improving international security, including more than a decade focused on intermodal supply chain security and resilience, said BIC. Its Board of Directors cited Stephen Caldwell’s promotion of strategic, risk-based, and cooperative container security programs on behalf of the US Government and the broader international maritime supply chain system, when making the selection.
The annual BIC Award honours individuals or organisations for significant contributions towards these goals. For more than a decade Stephen Caldwell has evaluated international security programmes for the United States Congress, including the past decade as Director of Maritime and Supply Chain Security Issues at the US Government Accountability Office (GAO). He worked closely with the U.S. Congress and federal agencies, and various other stakeholders involved in cargo container and intermodal transportation security.
His recommendations have been adopted by US Customs and Border Protection, the US Coast Guard and other federal agencies, to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of container and intermodal security programmes and he has developed and maintained relationships with international organisations, trade associations, private companies, and other maritime stakeholders.
“For decades Mr Caldwell has brought true passion and dedication to supply chain security and we are pleased to show him some well-deserved appreciation,” said BIC Board Chairman, Giordano Guerrini.
The award will be presented to Stephen Caldwell in person at the Maritime Security 2016 East conference, hosted by Homeland Security Outlook, which takes place from 21-23 March in Norfolk, Virginia.
