But more importantly, I’m pleased to be able to hear from you during this conference and afterwards. NVOCCs and forwarders are such an important part of the maritime industry we support, and each year you grow both in number and importance.

Commissioner Mario Cordero's Remarks at the World LNG Fuels Conference in Houston, Texas on January 26, 2012
As you are all aware, there has been significant activity in the maritime community in the environmental arena, including advocating for the use and development of alternative fuels. The Federal Maritime Commission is an independent regulatory agency responsible for regulating ocean borne transportation in the foreign commerce of the United States. My remarks today are my personal views and do not necessarily represent the views of the FMC. My past association on environmental policy issues also stems from my previous experience as a Commissioner at the Port of Long Beach, by all accounts a global leader not only in containerization, but a leader as a Green Port.
