The Maritime Administration provides critical marine transportation outreach activities at our major U.S. gateway ports. Under the leadership of the associate administrator for ports and waterways, 10 Gateway offices are the agency’s day-to-day presence throughout the Marine Transportation System. The Gateway offices are critical to the viability and effectiveness of the Maritime Administration and its future programs.

The Gateway office supports the agency’s priorities on America’s Marine Highways initiative, port infrastructure development, improved delivery of federal services to the Marine Transportation System and ports through regular coordination and leadership with port stakeholders.
