New Tariff - FMC Tariff Publication: Rules
U.S. Federal Maritime Commission regulations require that Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs) and Vessel Operating Common Carriers (VOCCs) publish and maintain tariffs listing all charges, classifications, rules, and practices applicable to their ocean freight services. Marine Terminal Operators (MTOs) have the option of maintaining an FMC tariff.
The requirement to publish tariff rules also applies to NVOCCs that use Negotiated Rate Arrangements (NRAs).
FMC tariff regulations require that all tariffs meet detailed formatting, record-keeping, and access requirements. Our secure cloud database provides 24/7 access to your FMC tariff and makes requesting updates easy and efficient.
