The Federal Maritime Commission is seeking through June 30 applications for membership on its newly-formed National Shipper Advisory Committee. This committee will advise the FMC on policies relating to the competitiveness, reliability, integrity, and fairness of the international ocean freight delivery system. The FMC has been actively investigating related issues in recent years, including freight rates, detention and demurrage policies, and carrier tariff access fees.
Persons who export cargo from or import cargo into the U.S. using ocean common carriers may apply to serve on the committee. In selecting members the FMC will consider factors such as commodities shipped, ports used, geographic areas served, and origins of cargo.
