Vessel-Operating Common Carriers (VOCCs) must file Service Contracts with the Federal Maritime Commission via the SERVCON system. All Service Contracts must be filed no later than 30 days after they are signed by the VOCC and shipper. FMC regulations require that Service Contracts contain specific terms, shipment details, and rate information. There are also detailed agreement and filing requirements for Service Contracts.
