ASECTT is a group of shippers, carriers, brokers, and other interested parties that has been formed to alert the shipping community of the impact of CSA on capacity, competition and liability.
Please join ASECTT in our mission. Stay tuned for the latest news in "Media Coverage" below.
This request shows a building consensus for ASECTT's position that SMS methodology is flawed and not fit for use.
Today, ASECTT has filed a similar request with Secretary Foxx, pointing out the flaws in SMS methodology, our consistent opposition to its publication and the adverse consequences of publication on shippers and brokers as well as carriers. See the letter to Secretary Foxx.
Joining in ASECTT's request is a coalition of affected industry participants including carrier, shipper and intermediary groups. We are heartened by the increasing industry recognition that SMS methodology is not fit for use and should not be a tool for plaintiff's bar in tort liability suits.
