FMC reviews 16 OTI license applications

The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has received 16 ocean transportation intermediary license applications and changes for review.

   The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) has received 16 ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) license applications and changes for review.
   The FMC received a non-vessel-operating common carrier license application from Interocean Trade and Transportation, Rosemead, Calif. (Michael Harris, vice president).
   In addition, the U.S. maritime regulator received NVO/ocean freight forwarder license applications from BVL Group (USA), City of Industry, Calif. (Billy K. Chan, president); GT Carriers, Heber, Calif. (Luis F. Garcia, chief executive officer); and Onboard Logistics USA, Miami (Pablo R. Varela, vice president).
   The FMC also received ocean freight forwarder license applications from Affinity Shipping (USA), Cerritos, Calif. (Loong-Hsiun Chang, director); B&G Futures, Canton, Ohio (Rodney L. Strata, secretary); and Trade Management Solutions, Round Rock, Texas (Hector Quintanar, managing partner). 
   In addition, the agency received license applications for changes to qualifying individuals from Agility International, Alexandria, Va. (Keven Falvo, vice president); Caribbean Shipping Services, Jacksonville Beach, Fla. (Paul Robbins, president); Ken Hamanaka Co., El Segundo, Calif. (Linda S. Hamanaka, vice president); Nippon Concept America, The Woodlands, Texas (Koji Tanaka, special manager); Penbroke Marine Services, Linden, N.J. (Michael V. Lewis, secretary); Pioneer Global Logistcs, Ontario Calif. (Chin-Tien L. Su, president); RMT Logistics, Pinecrest, Fla. (Janelle Mejias, secretary); and Transportation Worldwide, Houston (Michael Feigleson, secretary); and for the addition of trade name Upakweship from Eurousa Shipping, Charleston, S.C. (Mark A. Nash, president).
   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, D.C. 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.
