AMP is the broadest, deepest coalition ever assembled to represent the domestic maritime industry. Our members span the entire U.S. and its territories.
The American Maritime Partnership (AMP) is the broadest, deepest coalition ever assembled to represent the domestic maritime industry. AMP’s diverse membership, that spans the United States and its territories, is its greatest strength and our broad coalition includes vessel owners and operators, shipboard and shoreside workers, shipbuilders and repair yards, equipment manufacturers and vendors, dredging and marine construction contractors, numerous maritime associations and national security organizations that all recognize a strong domestic maritime industry is critical for America’s economic, national, and homeland security, and is best supported by maintaining the Jones Act as the foundation of America’s domestic maritime policy.
America’s maritime policy is based on three time-tested requirements established in the best interests of the nation, American industry and its workforce. Any vessel transporting goods or passengers between two points in the United States or engaging in certain activities in U.S. waters must be U.S. owned, U.S. built, and U.S. crewed.
