MarAd Launches Merchant Mariner Outreach System

Tuesday, June 06, 2006
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MarAd) has announced the creation of the new web-based Mariner Outreach System (MOS). The system will improve MarAd’s ability to contact mariners during a national sealift emergency. Merchant mariners provide crucial sealift to U.S. Armed Forces for overseas missions, and recently provided vital support for hurricane recovery efforts. The MOS, which will be operated by MARAD as a service to mariners, will also improve MARAD’s ability to communicate with them and to solicit feedback through questionnaires and surveys. The MOS also allows mariners to review their U.S. Coast Guard qualifications/sea service and provide up-to-date changes to their contact information.
