After a night of drinking in Qingdao, China, Jiang Wu mistook a shipping container as his hotel room. It’s a classic mistake that no doubt happens to thousands of people every year, yet nearly always goes unreported.

Unfortunately for Mr. Wu, this particular shipping container was about to start a two week voyage to the United States the next morning.

    Let’s put all the joking aside for a couple of minutes and look at the security issues here.

    First we have a man “wandering around” in port area – Where was the security for this port? How do you wander into a port? With all the new Security issues and regulations that have been deployed one was lead to believe by the “Authorities” that such a thing would not be possible.

    Second was the Ocean carrier and the Terminal operator, how did this get past them? After all, they are charging the customer a fee for the security. This situation could leave one to think that they are charging a fee for the “Security Service” but not providing it.

    Finally where are the “Authorities” that forced all these addition security processes and expenses on the global trade community? They have forced a changed that is costing us all a great money collectively. Only to learn that we do not receive the value that was mandated.

    I feel that such a situation is a bit difficult to laugh at.
