The Ocean Shipping Landscape – Updates from the Federal Maritime Commission 
Carl Bentzel, Federal Maritime Commission
With the passage of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act (OSRA) and ongoing actions taken by the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC), the ocean shipping landscape has been ever-changing. The FMC has overseen several new projects such as the Maritime Data Initiative and National Shipper Advisory Committee, begun promulgating various rulemakings, and received expanded authority through OSRA – all of which have given the agency more opportunity to increase enforcement and work to resolve shipping challenges. In this session, FMC Commissioner Carl Bentzel detailed recent updates in ocean shipping and their impacts.
