ACC Welcomes Senate Action to Pass Ocean Shipping Reforms

Scott Jensen

WASHINGTON (April 1, 2022) — The Senate unanimously approved the Ocean Shipping Reform Act on Thursday to help address long-standing issues in the maritime industry.

The following statement regarding the Senate vote can be attributed to the American Chemistry Council:

“Ocean carriers have left U.S. manufacturers stranded at the dock. Building on the House legislation, Senators Klobuchar and Thune have done a terrific job advancing a bill that will help prevent ocean carriers from penalizing American producers and refusing to ship U.S. exports.

“With many of our members reporting serious delays and other problems with maritime shipments - we commend the Senate for acting and strongly encourage President Biden to sign the Ocean Shipping Reform Act when it reaches his desk.”
