FMC REVIEWS CHASSIS, PER DIEM, DEMURRAGE

August, 2015

At the behest of several industry groups, the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is taking a more active roll in reviewing chassis inspection procedures as well as per diem and demurrage fees assessed during the negotiation-related work slowdowns. Initially, the FMC requested the ocean carriers provide information for analysis, however, the information has not been forthcoming. Now, the FMC is looking into issuing an order to demand the information.
