It is aimed at whether they include companies that do not appear in the transport contract

In particular, several operators have raised concerns about how Vessel Operating Common is billed Carriers and, specifically, the extensive way in which VOCCs interpret the definition of "merchant" in policies load. "We encourage stakeholders within the containerized shipping - explained the President FMC's Michael Khouri - to share their experiences with the FMC policies that contain the definition "Merchant".
