MarAd Seeks to Designate Ships for Relief

Tuesday, June 27, 2006
According to reports, the U.S. Maritime Administration (MarAd) is seeking to designate one or more vessels as relief ships for rescue operations during disasters. Speaking on the sidelines of the API Tanker Conference 2006, Varshney said that MarAd and the U.S. Military Sealift Command (MSC) should collaborate to make this idea materialize. This was suggested in the aftermath of the hurricane season in the U.S. Gulf Coast last year, which raised several questions about contingency plans for disasters and logistics problems.
