IMPORTANT, pending general surcharge of sea-freight from Europe to Asia


There are very strong indications that the freight rates will increase in April this year; the exact increase is not known but we have heard figures up to USD1200/40’. We do not understand the reasoning behind such increase since all vessels are fully booked and it is almost impossible to find any free container space this month.

We refer to our contract notes which mention; “General freight increases or bunkerage surcharges are not covered under this contract and for the Buyer's account”.

Pls make sure all you customers are aware of the pending surcharge.

We will distribute this information via e-news, FB and LinkedIn and will keep you updated once we have more definite news.
