We had it already in our news, however, these seem to be the Transpac surcharges:
Transpacific Trade – Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS)
Dear Valued Customer,
Please be advised that after our review of the various factors contributing to the ongoing port congestion situation along the US West Coast, such as equipment availability issues and the severe impact on productivity from the slowdown at the affected ports, OOCL has implemented a Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS) on all cargo entering and exiting the US West Coast ports based on shipment receipt on or after November 17.
OOCL will continue to assess the congestion situation and the significant cost impact on our operations to determine the duration of this PCS.
OOCL will assess its Port Congestion Surcharge on all US origin or US destination shipments arriving at or departing via any US West Coast port or Canadian Gateway port for shipments received on or after November 17, 2014.
