If your ocean shipments are being handled by freight forwarders and non-vessel-operating common carriers (NVOCCs), you need to know these new FMC compliance rules. The most paradigm shifting change introduced by the new rules is the introduction of licensure renewal requirements. In addition to the license renewal requirements, the Final Rule amends, adds, and deletes a number of other provisions in the Ocean Transportation Intermediaries OTI regulations.
This complimentary one-hour webinar will highlight some of the key compliance changes and offer suggestions on how to navigate the new regulations in the context of your particular business and industry sector.
