New Portland TWIC/HAZMAT Enrollment Center Announced
Earlier this month, MMTA was notified that the Portland, ME-Lancaster St Universal Enrollment Center was permanently closing effective at the close of business on Friday, June 26, 2020. Subsequently, we heard from Senator Susan Collins office, after they contacted the Transportation Security Administration with the trucking industry’s concerns, that a new Portland TWIC/HAZMAT Enrollment Center would be opening on June 30th to avoid any lapse in southern Maine services.
We now know the location of the new enrollment center from TSA:
The Portland, ME-Lancaster St Universal Enrollment Center will be relocating. Effective close of business on 6/26, operations will cease at the current location at 175 Lancaster St Ste 213 Portland, ME 04101-2400.
We will reopen 6/29, at the following address: IdentoGO 343 Gorham Rd South Portland, ME 04106-2304.
This location is across the street from the Maine Mall. MMTA has reached out to the Maine Mall to see what their policy is for temporary truck parking in order to avoid any issues prior to June 30th. We will let members know what they say, but it goes without saying that it will be important for any driver using their parking lot to be respectful and courteous in an effort to discourage any adverse implications for others in the trucking industry.
