FMC Maritime Transportation Data Initiative – Next meeting with Warehouse, Distribution, and 3PL Sectors

In December 2021, the Chairman of The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC), Daniel B. Maffei appointed Commissioner Carl Bentzel to spearhead an initiative of the FMC to focus on identifying data constraints that impede the flow of ocean cargo adding to supply chain inefficiencies in the USA.

As per the FMC, “This project will aim to establish data standards and best practices for data access and transmission essential for a reliable and stable ocean transportation system.

Starting in December, through the first half of 2022, Commissioner Bentzel announced plans to convene a series of meetings with maritime and intermodal stakeholders with initial findings presented at a data summit to be hosted by the FMC in the spring of 2022.
