MarAd Establishes Voluntary Intermodal Sealift Agreement

MarAd announces the establishment of the Voluntary Intermodal Sealift Agreement (VISA), pursuant to section 708 of the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2158). The VISA is scheduled for publica- tion in the Federal Register.

The purpose of the Agreement is to promote and facilitate the use of intermodal transportation systems, including ships, ships' space, intermodal equipment and related management services, and to maximize Department of Defense's use of commercial transportation resources to support the emergency deployment and sustainment of U.S. military forces through cooperation among the maritime industry, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Defense.

Copies of the VISA are available to the public upon request from MarAd's Office of National Security Plans.
