   The FMC also received ocean freight forwarder license applications from Grace International Relocations, Oceanside, Calif. (Michael Gilbert, manager); and Ruby International Consultants, Bal Harbour, Fla. (Helen Shany, president).
   In addition, the agency received license applications for changes to qualifying individuals from Aerostar Global Logistics, Lombard, Ill. (My Nguyen, assistant secretary); Horizon International Cargo, Hawthorne, Calif. (Erick Mejia, assistant secretary); and Kintetsu World Express (U.S.A.), Jericho, N.Y. (Steven R. Moser, vice president).
   Persons knowing of any reason why an applicant should not receive an OTI license or amendment are urged to contact the FMC’s Office of Transportation Intermediaries in Washington, D.C. Lists of licensed OTIs (applications approved, bonds in place and fully licensed) — both ocean freight forwarders and NVOs — also are available on the FMC website.
