Exporting Basics: Preparing and Shipping Goods
What is cabotage?
Cabotage is the trade or transport of cargo in coastal waters between two points within a country. U.S. cabotage laws are referred to as the Jones Act. Cabotage laws are common to all countries with waterborne transportation systems. The actual interpretation and enforcement of the Jones Act is the responsibility of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Coast Guard.
