    Shippers Sound Off: US Advisory Group Has the FMC’s Ear

    The new 24-member National Shipper Advisory Committee is the first of its kind for the Federal Maritime Commission, giving importers and exporters a louder and more direct voice in how regulators monitor and work to strengthen the industry. Hearing frustration from shippers about everything from service levels to data integrity, the FMC encouraged Congress to establish a vehicle to better keep importers and exporters front-and-center to their work. In this session, advisory committee members, coming from small, medium-sized, and large shippers of all kinds of goods and commodities will share what challenges they’re facing in their containerized supply chains and how that’s instructing their committee work in terms of the group’s priorities for 2022.
