Abstract: The research on advancement of container security standards has gained considerable importance in recent years. Worldwide container transportation is large in scale and involves multiple stakeholders at multiple touch-points. This makes it particularly vulnerable for use by terrorists as a medium to smuggle weapons of mass destruction into different countries for carrying out attacks, which may lead to loss of human lives and have adverse impact on economic stability and growth. A survey of research publications in this area suggests a lack of a unified frame of reference. We present a detailed classification of literature on operations management aspects of container security and discuss the various advancements in research and practice. Future research directions are outlined.
