FMC reviews 12 OTI license applications

   The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has received 12 license applications and changes for review. 
   The FMC received non-vessel-operating common carrier/ocean freight forwarder license applications from Barker International, Naperville, Ill. (Peter R. Barker, president); Efrinsa Global Logistics, Miami (Christian Urquizo, director); Inter-Commerce Exports, Houston (James Santamaria, president); NDA Worldwide Logistics Corp., Los Angeles (Norman D. Arauz, president); Stealth Logistics, Dover, Del. (Daryl T. Washington, president); and Worldwide Shipping Corp., Rowland Heights, Calif. (Willie Wu, president).
   The agency also received ocean freight forwarder license applications from A-1 Fargo Van and Storage, Miami (Treva E. Ward, vice president); Avantage Worldwide Co., Seattle (Victor Viet Quoc Tran, member); Lawrence Family Enterprises, Marietta, Ga. (Jimmy F. Lawrence, vice president); and MMC Logistics, Atlanta (John S. Chihade, manager).
   In addition, the FMC received applications for a change to a qualifying individual from Bruzzone Shipping, Freeport, N.Y. (Victor J. Bruzzone, president); and for the addition of trade names from OTX Logistics, Los Angeles (Stacy Allen-Kohn, vice president) to include PAC Worldwide Transport Co., PAC International Logistics Co., and Book Express Network.
   Persons knowing of any reason why an applicant should not receive an OTI license or amendment are urged to contact the FMC’s Office of Transportation Intermediaries in Washington at (202) 523-5843. Lists of licensed OTIs (applications approved, bonds in place and fully licensed) – both ocean freight forwarders and NVOs – are also available on the FMC Website.
