WASHINGTON – The American Maritime Partnership (AMP), the voice of the nation’s domestic
maritime industry, today released the following statement from AMP Chairman Thomas A.
Allegretti on efforts to resupply the state of New Jersey with road salt. Allegretti said that a U.S.- flag vessel would deliver salt to New Jersey before it is needed again.
“The maritime industry is working to ensure that the state has the resources it needs to meet its seasonal demand,” said Thomas A. Allegretti, Chairman of the American Maritime Partnership. “Despite short notice by transportation officials, maritime operators are moving to accelerate a request for additional salt and will deliver a new shipment to New Jersey before it is needed again.”
