Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Federal Maritime Commission has issued a show cause order against a licensed non-vessel-operating common carrier and ocean freight forwarder based in New York. The FMC has determined that this company is no longer qualified to provide OTI services because it failed to advise the FMC of changes in its qualifying individual and officers within 30 days after such changes occurred and has failed to maintain an active QI since the previous one left in March 2013. This order therefore directs the company to show cause no later than March 21 why its OTI license should not be revoked and why the FMC should not order it to cease and desist from operating as an OTI in the foreign trade of the U.S.
