BMSB Surcharge for LCL imports ex Italy
For Italian cargo loaded from 1st September, Mondiale have been having cargo treated offshore to meet the requirements outlined by NZ Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).
The treatment providers at origin have very strict requirements on how the containers must be packed to ensure there is sufficient space in the container for the fumigant to reach all the products and ensure treatment is effective and compliant.
This procedure has resulted in increased costs and less load capacity in the container and as a result, the BMSB Surcharge from Italy will be increasing to cover the costs incurred.
For vessels departing from 18th October 2019, the BMSB Surcharge will be EUR25 w|m (Min EUR25 per Bill of Lading). If a treatment cert is requested, the cost for this will be EUR 20.
If you require any further information in the meantime, please contact your Mondiale representative.
