Ocean Freight Update: The Latest on the Ocean Shipping Reform Act and FMC Regulations

November 4, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

There has been so much upheaval in the ocean freight sector over the past two years. Sky-high rates, congestion everywhere, container shortages, etc. In response, the U.S. Congress passed the Ocean Shipping Reform Act (OSRA) to address that turmoil. This will lead to new regulations from the Federal Maritime Commission. Learn from expert Karyn Booth about this new law and what it means for movers who book ocean freight to and from the United States. OSRA also addresses how detention and demurrage can be charged by shipping lines and terminal operators. This has long been a key issue for IAM Members and Karyn will be able to share more on how OSRA will impact that.
