MARAD seeks to ensure a globally safe and environmentally sound marine transportation system that improves the worldwide competitiveness and national security of the United States. This system, which facilitates the efficient and secure movement of people and cargo, ensures the US enjoys adequate shipbuilding and repair service, efficient and adequate port capacity, and effective international water and landside transportation.
MARAD also promotes the use of US-flag vessels, manages the Maritime Security Program, oversees an active reserve of ships in the Ready Reserve Force, maintains an inactive inventory of ships in the National Defense Reserve Fleet, and ensures a pool of highly skilled merchant marine officers and seafarers through its operation of the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, NY, and its support of six state maritime academies located throughout the nation in California, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, and Texas.
In addition, the Agency has increased its focus on logistics, ports, intermodalism, environmental activities and international trade practices.
