  FMC

The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) was established as an independent regulatory agency August 12, 1961.  Prior to that time, the Federal Maritime Board was responsible for both the regulation of ocean commerce and the promotion of the United States Merchant Marine.  Under the reorganization plan, the shipping laws of the U.S. were separated into two categories: regulatory and promotional. 

The newly created FMC was charged with the administration of the regulatory provisions of the shipping laws. The Commission is responsible for the regulation of ocean-borne transportation in the foreign commerce of the U.S.  SecureGlobal Logistics is an FMC-certified Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier (NVOCC) and is authorized to book ocean freight of all kinds - including dangerous goods - for international transport.
