The US Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is seeking public comment on whether supply chain congestion has created conditions warranting the issuance of a 60-day emergency order requiring common carriers and marine terminal operators to share key information with shippers, truckers and railroads.  Under the new Ocean Shipping Reform Act (2022), interested parties can submit their views on whether congestion has had an adverse effect on the competitiveness and reliability of the international ocean transportation supply system; whether an emergency order would alleviate the emergency situation; and what the appropriate scope of an emergency order should be.
