TGA Urges President Biden to Address Shipping Crisis

On June 24, TGA sent a letter urging President Biden to immediately address the shipping crisis by 1) enforcing current rules and regulations against contract breaches and unfair detention/demurrage charges; 2) forcing all stakeholders to the table to develop and implement solutions to the crisis; and 3) providing relief to the industry by eliminating tariffs. TGA has also joined a growing shipper coalition pushing Congress to pass legislation to empower the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) to more aggressively regulate ocean carriers, terminals and ports. TGA’s actions are part of a larger social media campaign to raise public awareness of the shipping crisis and spur policy makers in Washington, DC to act to address it.
