The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has received five ocean transportation intermediary license applications and changes for review.
The FMC received a non-vessel-operating common carrier license application from Blade Express, Hawthorn, Calif. (Kathleen Martin, secretary).
The agency also received a NVO/ocean freight forwarder license application from M2K Consulting, Burbank, Calif. (Abet Mehrabian, secretary); and an ocean freight forwarder license application from Navterra, Sausalito, Calif. (Maureen D. Agius, vice president).
In addition, the agency received applications for changes to qualifying individuals from Global Expeditors, Avenel, N.J. (Robert J. O'Neill, member); and Total Global Solutions, Kennesaw, Ga. (Dennis R. Smith, chief executive officer).
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
