Atlantic Pacific Tariffs Inc. (AP Tariffs), in collaboration with World Insurance Agency, successfully conducted a two-day webinar in November 2023, centered on guiding foreign companies in registering as Ocean Transportation Intermediaries (OTIs) with the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission (FMC).
The webinar addressed the complexities foreign OTIs face in operating within the U.S., emphasizing the confusion and time-consuming nature of the FMC-65 application procedure.
Mauricio Larenas, president of AP Tariffs, engaged with WCA World Academy Members, providing an in-depth exploration of the complicated process of obtaining OTI registration for foreign companies. He delved into crucial details, including required documentation, the timeline of the application process, associated costs, and more.
The sessions were hosted by Greg J Kritz of World Insurance Agency alongside Mauricio Larenas of AP Tariffs.
