The Jones Act
  • Passed by Congress and signed into law in 1920. 
  • States that all cargo sailing from one U.S. port to another U.S. port, either directly or via a foreign port, must sail on a vessel that is U.S. crewed, owned and built.
  • The law applies to all domestic cargo sailing on U.S. rivers and lakes, coastwise and from the mainland to the three noncontiguous locations (Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico).
  • Guam, while not Jones Act restricted, does require a registry endorsement of U.S.-flagged and U.S.-crewed vessel service.
  • Similar requirements have been established for all forms of domestic cargo and passenger transportation in the United States and in nearly all developed nations.
  • Provides long-term service and rate stability end encourages investment in domestic port infrastructure.
  • A factor in national security in that all domestic transportation is owned and operated by U.S. citizens.
