PMSA and WSC challenge FMC framework

The Pacific Merchant Shipping Association and the World Shipping Council have filed a Petition for Review of the Commission’s Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) regarding Docket No. 2022-0066.  The petition suggests that the Federal Maritime Commission’s proposal to create an entirely new demurrage and detention billing framework will undermine and deviate from the “Incentive Principle” in existing law that creates financial incentives to move cargo promptly and efficiently. Undermining the Incentive Principle would have an adverse impact on port congestion and air quality.
