Cargo theft is becoming epidemic, and even supposedly secure trailer parking facilities are becoming increasingly the target of professional thieves. We at TXS believe the only realistic and affordable way to protect cargo in transit is with live security personnel at shared fleet facilities. So far, our model works.

TXS 24/7 Secure Trailer Parking Network

Mr. Morton is a former Special Agent of the FBI and recently, Director of Security for Prime Inc. He is a formal head of the ATA Security Council in 2011.

Terminal Exchange Services ("TXS") officially announces today the addition of Mr. James Morton to the TXS team of Operational Specialists. Mr. Morton has been retained as the primary security consultant to TXS. His expertise will support the company mission, as TXS moves forward in professionally vetting the security of its contracted, affiliated and company owned 24/7 Secure Drop Yards and trailer storage facilities.

Mr. Morton is a former Special Agent of the FBI and recently, Director of Security for Prime Inc. He is a formal member of American Trucking Association Security Council and was the head of the Council in 2011. In addition, he is an expert at C-TPAT issues and continues to give seminars and webinars on this subject. He is considered one of the foremost experts in supply chain and transportation security within the trucking and secure storage industry. His past experience as Director of Security for other major transportation companies will be invaluable in augmenting TXS' robust expansion throughout North America. Every facility associated with TXS will be vetted to ensure provision of absolutely the best standard of security available.

Protocols established by Mr. Morton and TXS' Executive Staff will be systematically implemented throughout all 238 of TXS' nationwide Network of secure trailer parking facilities. Uniformity of HD recorded surveillance systems, secure lighting, perimeter security systems, 24/7 Gate-Keeping - login and logout procedures, inventory control, verified dispatch controlled release, secure document handling, and 24/7 trained staff procedures will be implemented, tested real-time, and vetted to TXS' and Mr. Morton's specifications.

“Jamie Morton is one of the best in the industry”, say’s J.P. Harwood. Eight years ago, he was one of my very first influences in this Industry, and he taught me well. “No one knows the security end of the transportation industry better than this man.” “He wrote the book.”


TXS founder, J.P. Harwood is the original author of the Secure Trailer Parking Network, which he started at his kitchen table over eight years ago in Santa Monica California with three yards. At the time of this Press Release, TXS was in the process of vetting its 284th facility to join an operational Network of 238 locations.

With over 284 independent, contracted, and company owned facilities throughout the United States and Canada, Terminal Exchange Services is well on its way in establishing the very first National Wireless Reservation Network whereas truckers or their dispatchers can go online or to their smart phone and reserve a safe, secure tractor/trailer space anywhere in the United States or Canada at any stage in route to their final destination of their delivery of cargo.

Whether it is Intermodal drayage and storage or over-the-road, Truckload Carriers, TXS can provide secure equipment parking, staging and services virtually anywhere. All while providing the absolute best standard of security in the industry. Our mission is to protect the cargo, the equipment, and by extension our clients drivers better than anyone else!

TXS objectives are to provide 24/7 secure facilities that are designed for preventing cargo theft either by perimeter break-ends and burglary’s, truckload hijackings or by use of identity theft for fraudulent pick-ups. James Morton oversight and experience will enhance and improve our ability to perform this job better. We provide these services for over-the-road fleets and intermodal carrier’s local container operations by arranging access to shared 24/7 secure managed facilities, eliminating the burden of the heavy capital expense of owning, staffing, and maintaining an exclusive use self-staffed facility. By doing so, carriers can utilize their operating budgets to open more lanes and service more shippers by taking advantage of our multiple locations.
