MarAd Publishes Foreign-Flag Crewing Practices

January 29, 2007

The Maritime Administration (MARAD) has published Foreign-Flag Crewing Practices, a review of crewing practices in U.S.-foreign ocean shipping. The report is a comprehensive analysis of the nationalities and size of the crews of non-U.S.-flag (foreign-flag) cargo vessels calling at major ports of the United States during Calendar Year 2004. Data utilized in developing the study was gleaned from the "Crew List" form completed by the master of each vessel entering the U.S. and submitted to the United States Department of Homeland Security/Customs and Border Patrol. The study is necessary to assist the MARAD in developing insights and understanding of the competitive trends facing the U.S.-flag industry. The report may be viewed via the Internet at Copies of the report may be obtained from MARAD's Office of Financial and Rate Approvals, room 8117(telephone: 202-366-2321 or 202-366-2314) or by email from or Reports may also be obtained from the Office of Congressional and Public Affairs, room 7219 (telephone: 202-366-5807), 400 Seventh St., SW, Washington, DC 20590.
