William P. Doyle, Commissioner, Federal Maritime Commission.

President Barack Obama last week announced 11 nominations to key Administration posts. Among them was William P. Doyle, who currently serves as a Commissioner of the Federal Maritime Commission.

William P. Doyle currently serves as a Commissioner on the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC).  Prior to joining the FMC, from 2011 to 2013, Mr. Doyle served as the Chief-of-Staff for the Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association from 2011 to 2013.  From 2008 to 2011, Mr. Doyle was the Director of Permitting, Scheduling, and Compliance at the Office of the Federal Coordinator for Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Projects from 2008 to 2011, and was the Deputy General Counsel and Director of Government and Legislative Affairs for the Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association from 2002 to 2008.  Mr. Doyle received a B.S. from Massachusetts Maritime Academy and a J.D. from Widener University School of Law.

The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is the independent federal agency responsible for regulating the U.S. international ocean transportation system for the benefit of U.S. exporters, importers, and the U.S. consumer.

The FMC ensures competitive and efficient ocean transportation services for the shipping public by:
 

  • Reviewing and monitoring agreements among ocean common carriers and marine terminal operators (MTOs) serving the U.S. foreign oceanborne trades to ensure that they do not cause substantial increases in transportation costs or decreases in transportation services
  • Maintaining and reviewing confidentially filed service contracts and Non-Vessel-Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) Service Arrangements to guard against detrimental effects to shipping
  • Providing a forum for exporters, importers, and other members of the shipping public to obtain relief from ocean shipping practices or disputes that impede the flow of commerce
  • Ensuring common carriers’ tariff rates and charges are published in private, automated tariff systems and electronically available
  • Monitoring rates, charges, and rules of government-owned or –controlled carriers to ensure they are just and reasonable
  • Taking action to address unfavorable conditions caused by foreign government or business practices in U.S. foreign shipping trades
