Temporary Congestion Surcharge – LCL ex West Coast
LCL shipments ex West Coast ports has previously been noted as US$6 per w/m. With the port situation steadily improving on the West Coast, we have been monitoring this surcharge. Unfortunately, there are still considerable additional costs (mostly associated with trucking) which are having an impact on the West Coast market. Truckers are still reporting long lines, split chassis fees, waiting times and higher based trucking costs, due to supply and demand. With this in mind, we are pleased to report there is still a definite improvement from when this surcharge was implemented. As a result, we are pleased to announce a reduction in the Temporary Congestion Surcharge from US$6 per w/m to US$2 per w/m. Your rates will be updated immediately.
