GRI ex USA and Canada via East, West and Gulf coast ports to Australia and New Zealand - Update

Further to our advice last month of an impending GRI ex USA and Canada from all ports, shipping lines have now decided to postpone the increase from the East Coast and Gulf Ports to 1st August 2015.

For shipments from the West Coast ports, the GRI came into effect as advised, on June 15th 2015. The figures are:-

US$ 175 per 20’

US$ 350 per 40’/40HC

LCL was increased by USD7W/M effective the same day

(note however, given there was a US$2w/m decrease in EFAF from these same ports on the same date, this equates to an overall increase of only US$5w/m)

Revised BAF ex UK/North West Continent & Mediterranean to Australia / New Zealand

Please be advised that shipping lines have announced a revised BAF effective 1st July 2015 of:-

US$ 555.00 per 20’

US$ 1110.00 per 40’/40’HC

,

GRI (General Rate Increase) notices

We have had notifications this month from various shipping lines in regards to a proposed general rate increase, details as follows:-

Ex Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea to Australia, effective 1st July 2015:-

US$300.00 per 20’

US$600.00 per 40’/40’HC

Again, it will be a wait and see approach as to whether the carriers’ put these increases through. If you are concerned regarding your rates, please do not hesitate to contact your sales representative who will be more than happy to discuss this with you.
