The Farm Service Agency (FSA) is announcing the availability of funding for the new Commodity Container Assistance Program (CCAP) in response to ongoing market disruptions that have created logistical challenges associated with all aspects of the availability and flow of containers to transport agricultural commodities and are preventing or delaying American-grown agricultural products from reaching their markets. The first iteration of this program will be focused on increasing intermodal container capacity through partnerships with the Port of Oakland, in Oakland, California, and the Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA), a marine cargo operating partnership between the Port of Seattle and the Port of Tacoma in Washington State. Both the Port of Oakland and the NWSA have been identified as key gateways for American-grown agricultural products, and each have also experienced significant challenges with the flow of containerized agricultural commodities and products. To ensure owners of American-grown agricultural products are able to ship their products from U.S. ports to global markets, CCAP will support improved use of empty shipping containers, along with the prepositioning and temporary storage of filled shipping containers near export terminals, to ensure agricultural shippers can deliver products to their customers.
