We don’t like to be the bearer of bad news but as a result of carriers withdrawing capacity on the Asia-Europe trade lane and increased strong demand on Westbound services, shipping lines have implemented a Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) applicable to all
containers being shipped from China and Asia for sailings from 1st September 2020.

For LCL bookings, we will be charging a $5.00 w/m surcharge on all Import shipments from the above areas from September 1st 2020, sailing date, until further notice.

We will continue to monitor the market and keep you updated with any further rate adjustments.

If you have any questions, please speak with your dedicated Account Manager or email commercial-team@cardinal.co.uk
