Maritime Administration: Draft Strategic Plan 1998-2002   [open pdf - 303KB]

The Maritime Administration's 1998-2002 Strategic Plan sets forth the mission, goals and specific actions that the Agency will pursue in implementing statutory mandates, which are to ensure the availability of: efficient water transportation service to American shippers and consumers; an adequate shipbuilding and repair base; efficient ports; effective intermodal water and land transportation connections; and sufficient intermodal shipping capacity for use by the Department of Defense in time of national emergency. This Strategic Plan provides direction into the challenges and changes facing the maritime industry, the Federal Government, and the economic and national security of the Nation. The massive increase in commercial waterborne commerce and passenger traffic projected for the future, as well as the increasing reliance of the U.S. military on commercial transportation systems, demands that the Department of Transportation (DOT) plan wisely now for these requirements.
