Freight Finance Program Launched MarAd, with the Export-Import Bank, developed a program to provide incentives for the commercial public to ship their U.S. export cargo on U.S.-flag vessels. The Ex-Im Bank provides guaranteed working capital loans for transportation-related cost associated with the export move that is carried on a U.S.-flag vessel. Such costs include ocean freight, marine insurance, export packing, trucking, railroad or other costs related to the logistics involved in the export of commercial cargo. These loans offer an incentive to use U.S.-flag vessels while concurrently improving cash flow for exporters, the freight forwarding industry and U.S.-flag carriers.
