On March 18, 2014, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan will participate in the Container Security Initiative (CSI). CBP says that CSI increases security for maritime containerized cargo shipped to the United States from around the world by addressing the threat to border security and global trade posed by the potential threat of terrorists and terrorist weapons in the maritime environment.

The Port of Aqaba will utilize near real-time remote imaging of a container examination process, while incorporating a live video transmission/feed to monitor the inspection process.  Non-intrusive inspection and radiation detection technology will be used to screen high-risk containers before they are shipped to US ports.
