Michael Khouri, who has served as acting FMC chairman since January 2017, was officially named chairman by President Trump on Thursday.

 

   President Trump on Thursday officially designated Michael A. Khouri as chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission.
    Khouri has served as acting FMC chairman since January 2017.
    “I thank President Trump for his expression of confidence,” Khouri said in a statement Friday. “I believe it reflects support for the great work that the entire FMC team is doing to ensure fair competition and integrity for America’s ocean supply chain.”
    Khouri began his service with the FMC as a commissioner in January 2010.

   For an insightful account of Khouri’s views and current work at the FMC, read American Shipper’s Feb. 18 Talking Trade interview.

The driver market continues to be tight, but not quite as much as the middle of 2018. The overall trend late last year was that turnover is slowing.

Spot container rates from Shanghai to the U.S. West Coast totaled $1,345 per FEU as of March 15, while rates from Shanghai to the U.S. East Coast stood at $2,357 per FEU, with rates on both trades falling each week since the Jan. 18 reading, according to data from the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index.
