I recently had a discussion with the executive director of the port of NYNJ. In that discussion, it came up that MARAD staff might not have a good understanding of the International Transportation and Trade industry, specifically Ocean Shipping and the critical work processes, documentation, logistics and overall operating processes to better work with and understand Trade. My organization offers this training as we do twice a year in NYNJ for the port, once a year in the Houston areas for the port and 10 times a year for the Port of Virginia community. Not knowing whom to speak to at MARAD about this, it is difficult to propose training. Any ideas?
