Abstract

Vessels and seaports, as conduits for international trade growth, serving over 90% of world
commerce, ascend to ever greater significance in a cost-conscious world reeling from the aftermath
of the 2008 global financial crisis. Ensuring the security of these through cost-efficacious practical
measures becomes more and more essential to avoid the costs of threats disrupting the potential
international supply chain management system and the costs of disrupting trade. Given the
increasing risks of terrorism and global piracy, ensuring a custom’s service that is sufficiently
modernised to simultaneously ensure the challenges of both trade facilitation and securitisation is
essential. This is paramount throughout the world but particularly for the vulnerable east Indian
Ocean facing Somalian piracy, port strikes and terrorism combined with historically underinvested
customs facilities. This paper utilises the main global elements, in particular through measures
endorsed globally and the specific example of South Africa to attempt to provide some insight
into formulating a custom’s response to global maritime security challenges, that governments
facing scarce customs resources could potentially endorse to further ensure the defence of seaports,
vessels and trade, particularly for the east Indian Ocean.
