Vision
 America’s Marine Highways are a routine intermodal choice
among shippers and freight forwarders, providing reliable
scheduled liner services;
 Expanded use of Marine Highways make measurable
improvements to environments impacted by transportation;
 Shippers request Marine Highway services as a more efficient
means of moving their goods because of both its cost
effectiveness and its pubic benefits;
 Marine Highway services are self sustaining and profitable
across the U.S., using both ships and barges;

Initiatives & Market Studies
•
Examining the potential for marine highway
services to provide relief of congested landside
corridors and to provide additional transportation
options.
•
Identifying types of vessels which would be suited
for marine highway routes.
•
Collecting data from various modes and sources
regarding the most congested corridors and types
of freight being moved.
•
Identifying markets which could be served.

SHIPPER CONCERNS
• Multiple shippers interviewed – key concerns
are:
• Reliability
• Consistency of schedule
• Visibility
• Cost
• Risk of delays in ports
9
Bottom Line
 Under current market and regulatory
conditions, sustainability of services are
difficult to predict
 Therefore, policy and regulatory changes are
required in order for services to be
economically sustainable.

Focus on States
 MAP 21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st
Century) S. 1813:
 February 29, 2012 recommended for consideration by
the Senate
 Maritime projects will be able to compete in State
DOT programs for:
 CMAQ funds
 Up to $400 million for infrastructure projects more cost
effective than highway options
 Up to $1 billion for infrastructure projects of national or
regional significance
Focus on States
 38 State DOTs influence America’s Marine Highways
 Which State DOT department will consider it?
 9 = maritime, ports, waterways or marine
 8 = planning
 6 = intermodal
 4 = freight
 3 = rail & marine/railroads & harbors
 1 = aviation & ports
 1 = trade development
 6= have no department that addresses maritime
