FMC Update: Fact Finding Investigation No. 29 Interim Recommendations

Responding to complaints from organizations like IAM, the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) has issued its interim recommendations regarding alleged abusive practices by shipping lines and terminal operators in the US around assessment of demurrage and detention fees. IAM has testified several times before the FMC on this issue as part of a coalition of shipper groups impacted by these practices.

Supply Chain Issues Impacting the International Moving Industry

The ongoing supply chain crisis continues to directly affect every facet of international commerce including the global moving industry.

 

on the subject that has been circulated to governmental regulatory bodies, industry stakeholders and customers. We encourage you to share with your customers.

2022 DP3 Business Rule Change Overview

IAM created a summary of for the Defense Personal Property Program (DP3), all in one document. See for details on commenting on the rules. All business rule documents and proposed changes are posted on move.mil/sme; along with a comment resolution matrix (CRM) spreadsheet, that must be used by industry to make comments or recommend changes to the 2022 business rules. Questions on filling out the CRM can be directed to the TRANSCOM Ops Team at: ; or to Dan Bradley on the IAM staff at .

USTRANSCOM J9 Conditions Based Movement Call (10 Aug)

Please see attached and from the 10 August USTC industry/Services/JPPSO call.

 

The TRANSCOM Deputy Commander (VADM Mewbourne) was on the call, and engaged on an IAM question to USTC and the Services on what procedures a TSP should follow when an inconvenience claim is clearly out of the control of the TSP. He said he sensed that friction from the issues across the supply chain, and appreciated it being brought up; and believed it needed to be discussed. IAM has raised the issue on previous calls, and directly to USTC J9 leadership via correspondence with very little input to date. But with the Deputy Commander engaging on the topic, maybe we’ll see some movement on this issue.

USTRANSCOM J9 Conditions Based Movement Call (3 Aug)

Please see and from the 3 Aug USTC industry/Services/JPPSO call. One item of note to highlight:

 

Proposed 2022 DP3 business rules should be out tomorrow (4 Aug) via advisory from USTRANSCOM. Industry will likely need a quick turn on comments that DoD should consider based on their proposed changes. Look for that advisory tomorrow.

USTRANSCOM Peak Season Call (29 July)

The 29 July Peak Season call and are provided for your awareness. For those who participate in the call regularly, next week USTRANSCOM is changing the call over to MS TEAMS instead of the current dial in method. The TEAMS information is supposed to come out in an updated calendar appointment. Good conversation today about converted storage lots and some in DoD trying to re-activate those lots to DoD expense. Discussion on issues with third-party crating and reimbursements being out of synch with today’s realities. DoD asking TSPs to push the information from these calls out to their agent networks so the word gets down to everyone…for example mask policies, etc.
