Customer Advisory: Rate Announcement – West & Central Asia to North America


Dear Customers,



As Safmarine strives to continue to offer you a broad portfolio of services, we are announcing an increase in DRY FAK rates (Freight All Kinds). Below are the FAK rates for a sample list of corridors and container types where the rate increase is effective. As always, please visit my.safmarine.com for a quote, or your rate sheets or contracts will provide you with full details of rate increases





  • The above rates are inclusive of Basic Freight Rate (BAS) and Bunker Adjustment Factor (SBF).
  • The above rates are subject to Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSS), Emergency Risk Surcharge (ERS), Terminal Handling Charges (THC) and Peak Season Surcharge (PSS). Detailed levels of LSS, ERS, THC and PSS can be found here.
  • The above rates are also subject to other applicable surcharges, including local charges and contingency charges.
  • Other corridors, commodities and container types (including reefers) that are not listed above may also be subject to increases.
  • These rates are unaffected by, and do not affect, any tariff notified, published or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.
  • For trades subject to the US Shipping Act or the China Maritime Regulation, quotations or surcharges that vary from the Maersk Line tariff shall not be binding on Maersk Line, trading as Safmarine, unless included in a service contract or service contract amendment that has been filed with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) or the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, as applicable.
