IWLA Members Participate in Public Meeting on FMC Data Initiative
The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is hosting a series of meetings with maritime and intermodal stakeholders to identify data constraints that impede the flow of maritime cargo and contribute to supply chain inefficiency. The meetings are part of a larger FMC initiative to establish data standards and best practices for data access and transmission that will improve maritime shipping and transportation at U.S. ports.
FMC Commissioner Carl Bentzel hosted IWLA members Brett Mears of Palmer Logistics, Doug Sibila of People Services Inc., Jared Stadlin of Linden Warehouse and Distribution Co. Inc., and Jeremy Van Puffelen of Prism Logistics for the latest meeting held on January 11, 2022.
IWLA members were asked to identify data issues and weak points at U.S. ports that contribute to inefficiency and congestion in the supply chain. Commissioner Bentzel said it is important for the FMC to continue engaging with the warehousing and 3PL sector to address congestion in the supply chain and better connect supply chain stakeholders
