ABPA Signs Letter to FMC Expressing Concerns of Excess Dwell Fees Being Passed off to Importers & Consumers

The ABPA has been working with the OSRA21 Coalition to support the passing of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021. Recently, the ABPA has endorsed and signed off on a letter to the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) expressing concern that the recently announced “Excess Dwell Fees” will be simply passed along from the ocean carriers to the importers (ABPA Members). Please see the attached letter sent to FMC Chair Daniel Maffei on 11/15/21. The ABPA will continue to address the issue of excessive freight costs to our members through direct communication with the proper government agencies as well as working with our partners in the OSRA21 Coalition.”
