A short search online will tell you that companies like yours are paying penalties to the Federal Maritime Commission for non-compliance of FMC regulations, these fines regularly range widely, and one simple case can affect hundreds of shipments, multiplying the cost. Simply filing your Tariff Rates, Governing Rules, NRA’s and NSA’s in a FMC-compliant system may not be enough to make you compliant.
