The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has received 19 ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) license applications and changes for review.
    The FMC received a non-vessel-operating common carrier license application from Mi Terra RD Cargo Express Corp., Brooklyn, N.Y. (Felipe B. Vargas, president).
    The agency received NVO/ocean freight forwarder license applications from 2AT Logistics, Humble, Texas (Wanda L. Lacoste, member); Kamigumi USA, Plano, Texas (Jin Yang, vice president of operations); McLand Global Logistics, Houston (Stacey A. Walker, chief logistics officer); and Miami Cargos Group, Miami (Veronica Ratto Desmonteix, member).
    The FMC also received ocean freight forwarder license applications from AOG International USA, Springfield Gardens, N.Y. (Alan Chu, president); Paragon Logistics, Humble, Texas (Tricia C. Green, president); and Priority RoRo Services, San Juan, Puerto Rico (Wilmarie Rivera-Romero, secretary).
    In addition, the agency received license applications for changes to qualifying individuals from Airways Freight Corp., Fayetteville, Ark. (Jerome D. Casey, vice president of ocean operations); Ariana Worldwide Maritime, Carson, Calif. (Haris S. Baha, president); ATA Logistics, Gardena, Calif. (Gang Han, president); Dynamo Weltweit Logistik Corp., Doral, Fla. (Carlos A. Macaluso, president); Operadores Mundiales USA, Miami (Juan D. Bustamante, ocean freight coordinator); PGS USA, Metairie, La. (Armelle Honkou, secretary); Webgistix Corp., Las Vegas (Michael Manzione, CEO); and WPIA International Freight Systems, Miami (Carter D Gordon, president); for the addition of trade names Apologistics Worldwide from Agol Worldwide, Miami (Jorge Medina, director); and The RoRo Co. and Ro.Ro.Com from The Roll On Roll Off Co., Orlando, Fla. (Tareq Shrourou, member); and for the removal of trade names Port Alliance Logistics (Los Angeles) and Port Alliance Logistics (New York) from Port Alliance Logistics International, Garden City, N.Y. (Antao Chien, secretary).
   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 — also are available on the FMC website.

Shippers that have in the past relied on forwarders to afford access to multiple carriers should keep careful watch of where those forwarders’ allegiances lie, given the number of forwarders that are now captives of one carrier or another

The Port of Toronto, which is located on Lake Ontario and primarily serves as a bulk cargo destination, moved 2.18 million metric tons of cargo in 2018, surpassing a record-breaking year in 2017.
