From the Highlights: "Cargo preference requirements are intended to support the U.S.-flag shipping industry. The requirements are designed to ensure the industry, among other things, has sufficient vessels and trained mariners to supplement the cargo-carrying capacity of military ships during times of war or national emergency. This statement discusses: (1) the extent to which MARAD [Maritime Administration] has monitored and reported on agencies' compliance with cargo preference requirements and (2) MARAD's efforts to enforce cargo preference requirements, among other objectives."
