TWIC forces many truckers to go coastal – twice

Robert Billard makes six or seven trips a year to ports in Texas, South Carolina and Georgia, then returns home to Colorado Springs, CO, with steel, lumber and other imports loaded onto his flatbed and 1998 Mack truck. Billard wants to enroll in the TWIC program to make his one-man, one-truck business more marketable. Unfortunately, he lives hundreds of miles from the nearest enrollment centers.
