    Port Everglades exceed record cargo volumes in May and June, putting this global gateway for international trade on track to shatter its annual record from 2018.  “Unlike the downturn that we typically experience at the end of our busy melon season, we had a spike in May and June because of the new Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) services from South Asia and the Mediterranean,” said Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Jonathan Daniels, who also serves as the Chair of the Florida Ports Council.  Port Everglades handles an average of one-million TEUs annually and serves as a gateway to Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and India.

    The end of the vaccination requirement, is seen as a key step in the efforts for the cruise industry to rebound. Marking one year since cruises resumed from U.S. ports.  The industry’s optimism is driven by strong future sales. All the cruise lines report strong future bookings. The end of the vaccination requirements is seen as encouraging step and the cruise lines are hopeful that as problems recede with air travel that their bookings and occupancy will continue to rise.

    The Federal Maritime Commission said Thursday it is considering an emergency order that would  Require shipping lines and marine terminal operators to directly share cargo throughput and availability data with shippers, truckers and railroads. The agency is asking supply chain stakeholders to weigh in on whether congestion “has created conditions warranting the issuance of an emergency order.” The order would last no more than 60 days before it would have to be renewed. The move follows the passage of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act, which expanded the FMC’s powers to regulate the ocean shipping industry.
