Bechtel, a trusted engineering, construction and project management partner to industry and government, announced that Stephen Spoljaric, the company’s manager of global logistics, has been appointed to the U.S. Maritime Transportation System National Advisory Committee. As a member of the Committee, Spoljaric will share Bechtel’s global experience in logistics and supply chain solutions with other members to ensure effective use of marine transport and logistics infrastructure in the United States.

"Bechtel has almost 125 years of building complex projects around the world. That requires focus on safety and quality, talent, and efficiency, including multilayered supply chain systems,” said Vikas Joshi, Bechtel’s manager of EPC Functions. “We are looking forward to sharing our experience, lessons learned, and relationships with the industry and the U.S. Government through Stephen’s work at the U.S. Maritime Transportation Systems National Advisory Committee.”

“As the world ramps up efforts to drive to net zero and to open access and opportunity to underserved communities, Bechtel’s expertise in logistics and supply chain management can contribute to the U.S. Government goals in these areas,” said Stephen Spoljaric, Bechtel’s manager of Logistics. “I am proud to have been appointed to the Committee advising the U.S. Secretary of Transportation on issues related to the marine transportation system. I am looking forward to the Committee’s work as the industry takes on unprecedented global challenges.”

The U.S. Maritime Transportation System National Advisory Committee advises the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, through the Maritime Administration Administrator, on ways to identify and address impediments hindering the effective use of short sea transportation. The Committee will ultimately comprise 22 members from public and private entities and 5 senior federal employees from various agencies whose purpose is to guide the Secretary of Transportation on matters relating to U.S. maritime transportation, its integration with other segments of the transportation system, and the viability of the U.S. Merchant Marine.
