  • Freightgate Recognizes Federal Maritime Commission 48th Anniversary

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, August 13, 2009 ) Huntington Beach, California - In recognition of the Federal Maritime Commission 48th Anniversary this week, Freightgate announces a smarter way to stay compliant with the FMC regulations. Freightgate's FMC-Trek! allows full compliance with Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) requirements, helping to avoid costly fines and penalties.

    "In this economy everyone is cost-conscious and wants to avoid the headaches and expense of FMC penalties," says Martin Hubert, President of Freightgate. "Each and every NVOCC is facing the ocean tariff publishing obligation, and we we are proud to deliver this scalable and efficient solution to the industry. Our goal is to make the FMC tariff publishing process easier for everybody."

    The U.S. Ocean Shipping regulations established under the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1998 (OSRA), requires that any company providing ocean freight services as a "common carrier" in the foreign trade of the United States must maintain an electronic tariff of published ocean rates available for public inspection. Significant penalties may be enforced by the FMC for violations of this requirement. Last month, the FMC issued $748,000 in Civil Penalties.

    FMC-Trek!, an FMC ocean tariff publishing system, is an intelligent and efficient application designed to publish and maintain your ocean tariffs with the least amount of human intervention. FMC-Trek! is able to accept information directly from your booking system, validate it, and get it online - only notifying you if there are any rate conflicts with FMC regulations. FMC-Trek! offers:

    - FMC Ocean Tariff Publishing. A convenient and cost-effective tariff publication service for ocean vessel operators and NVOCCs. Seamless integration into virtually any booking system, reducing multiple entry, data inaccuracies, and even human reviews.

    - FMC Maritime Compliance. Fully FMC compliant. Conflict email alerts as well as an online conflict pool for those awaiting resolution. Our interactive templates make extensive use of links, pull-down menus and full-text options instead of codes.

    - Ocean Tariff Maintenance. Web-based application provides 24x7 access for both your company and the FMC. There is no faxing or emailing of documents to a publishing house. Automatic addition and removal of ocean tariff rates based on effective and expiration dates.

    - Historical Ocean Tariff Data. Enables customers to capture and maintain a database of ocean rates and service contract history. Includes storage and filing of rates into an off-site data center equipped with state-of the art security.

    - Web-Service Enabled. Freightgate pioneered aligning SaaS Information solutions. With Tariff-Trek! integration pricing information is globally available so staff across an entire organization can have access on-demand in real-time. Users can look up rates and calculate bottom-line scenarios based on specified shipment parameters.

    Freightgate helps logistics providers manage the full management cycle from ocean tender procurement, shipping rate management, tariff publishing to ocean invoice auditing, plus all necessary items to be compliant with FMC and U.S. Customs regulations.
