1 2012 Freight in the Southeast Conference America’s Marine Highway Services March 16, 2012 Lauren Brand, Director Office of Marine Highways & Passenger Vessel Services US DOT – Maritime Administration 1

2 2 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;

6 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. Initiatives & Market Studies 6

Analysis of short sea service along Pacific Coast handling domestic and feeder cargoes; using a door to door model A shipbuilder's perspective based on previous two reports Assess M- 95, M-5 and M- 10 plus the NEMH project (Maine to NY/NJ) AMH markets & prepare 11 Ship concept designs Conduct a study that examines the potential for Marine Highway service(s) to provide relief to the M-5 and connecting Marine Highway Corridors Conduct a study that examines the potential for Marine Highway service(s) to provide relief to the M-55 and connecting Marine Highway Corridors Conduct a study that examines the potential for Marine Highway service(s) to provide relief to the M-95 and connecting Marine Highway Corridors Refine three of the 11 MARAD concepts with cost data and calculate RFRs 7

9 Multiple shippers interviewed – key concerns are: Reliability Consistency of schedule Visibility Cost Risk of delays in ports SHIPPER CONCERNS 9

10  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. Bottom Line 10

11 11 Revision in the collection of the Harbor Maintenance Tax Government support for Ship Construction Tax credits for shippers who use more environmentally sustainable modes of transportation Investment in Port Infrastructure Amend the Tonnage Tax for U.S. flag ships Implement Marco Polo type startup assistance program Fund LNG fuel distribution capability Ensure users and beneficiaries pay for services commensurate with costs of providing them. Policy Options 11

12 12 HMT & Tonnage Tax

13 Focus on States MAP 21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21 st Century) S. 1813: MAP 21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21 st 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

14 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
