The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC
) issued a notice stating that the National Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association
International Association of NVOCCs have petitioned the FMC for an investigation of certain activities of the Transpacific Stabilization Agreement (TSA). The petition alleges that the TSA violated the Shipping
Act of 1984 through discriminatory service contracting practices with regard to traffic moving in the eastbound transpacific trades that intentionally discriminate against ocean transportation intermediaries.
