MLL Advisory – Compliance is Essential for US Government Customers

Thursday, September 22, 2016

As mentioned in our earlier announcement, Maersk has made enhancements in how we service you – a customer that participates in US Government business.

To help us better comply with the unique requirements associated with Government contracting such as: FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations) and sub-contractor flow-downs, Maersk has established regional FST’s (US Flag Support Teams) that have been specifically trained on how to properly execute US Flag impelled cargo.
