For and on behalf of our principal MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A., Geneva, we like to inform you that due to increased intermodal overweight shipments MSC is obliged to re-align its TRI-AXLE surcharge to a quantum of US$ 300,-/20’ (effective B/L date 06.09.2014) in order to cover increased operational costs.
This affects all shipments via US-ports as well as shipments into the USA via Montreal gateway.
Additionally, many trucking companies have given up handling hazardous cargo altogether due to the costs involved (certification, insurance, etc.) which has lead into complete specialized/licensed drivers pool depletion.
Subsequently, MSC will align the current hazardous cargo surcharge on intermodal shipments to the following levels: (effective B/L date 06.09.2014)
ALL MOTOR MOVES US$ 200,- / UNIT
RAIL RAMP MOVES US$ 150,- / UNIT
RAIL MOTOR MOVES US$ 350,- / UNIT
BARGE MOVES US$ 150,- / UNIT
RAIL MOTOR MOVES US$ 250,- / UNIT CROSSBORDER VIA CANADIAN GATEWAY
