The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has received six license applications and changes for review.
The FMC received a non-vessel-operating common carrier/ocean freight forwarder license application from Perimeter International, Irving, Texas (Beau Lamothe, treasurer).
The agency also received ocean freight forwarder license applications from Interglobal Shipping, Houston (Afsaneh Saei Oskoei, managing member); MGK International, Princeton, N.J. (Hitendra Jain, president); and Oceans Consolidators, Miami (Carlos J. Bengochea, president).
In addition, the FMC received applications for a change to a qualifying individual from Concepts in Freight, Doral, Fla. (Fadi Aftimos, vice president); and Katoen Natie Tank Operations, Houston (Frank Vingerhoets, director).
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
