Freight & Supply Chain Policy

The marine freight supply chain spans the global community. It is an intricate and dynamic system. Many parties including governments play a role. It is important to understand both the international and the domestic roles. Policies are formed and action taken by foreign states and entities on the international stage. U.S. domestic policy and action must be agile and responsive with respect to these international measures. On the other hand, domestic policy should be formulated and actions taken within the U.S. Marine terminal operators and stevedores operate within this environment.
