spacerabout ETM

Effective Tariff Management Corporation (ETM) was established in 1988 as a full service tariff filing and research firm located in suburban Washington, D.C. ETM posts internet tariffs and files service contracts with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) on behalf of vessel-operating common carriers, non-vessel-operating common carriers and marine terminal operators, as applicable. During the company's history, ETM has earned an unparalled reputation in the industry for service, accuracy and regulatory expertise.

ETM manages its internet tariff database in full compliance with FMC regulations. Our clients' tariffs are posted at ETM's tariff rate website. ETM also provides support services for carriers utilizing other vendors software, including service contract conversion to enable bottom line rate calculation of contract rates.

ETM maintains a staff of experienced tariff professionals with the benefit of extensive knowledge of maritime agreements, statutes and regulations. As the regulatory framework governing international shipping has evolved, ETM has kept abreast of these changes and has adapted its filings pursuant to the requirements of the FMC, and in the case of VOCC's in the U.S. domestic trades, those of the Surface Transportation Board.

We invite you to contact the Federal Maritime Commission to confirm our reputation as a world class tariff service. Alternatively, ask our clients about ETM's customer service and quality. Please see our selected list of clients.
