Clash over U.S. box security

Congress and the Bush administration are divided over the issue of scanning all U.S.-bound containers at foreign ports. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., chairman of the subcommittee on marine transportation, put administration witnesses on the spot about not meeting an October 2012 deadline that lawmakers imposed last year to achieve 100-percent scanning. For their part, witnesses from Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Energy argued that 100-percent scanning contradicted the established layered, risk-based approach to cargo security that has evolved since Sept. 11, 2001.

Shipping lines urge emissions standard

The liner shipping industry is encouraging governments to develop a unified set of standards to reduce carbon emissions from ocean-going vessels by working through the United Nations' International Maritime Organization.
