Use of Swiss high sea shipping

If there is a supply shortage and high sea shipping freight capacity is not available in sufficient volume or on sufficiently reasonable terms, the Confederation may, in the interests of national economic supply, requisition maritime freight capacity under the National Economic Supply Act (NESA).

If this happens, the Confederation may require owners of ships flying under the Swiss flag to conclude agreements with carriers.
