As we approach the PEAK SEASON with expected overbookings especially on direct sailings, all major Shipping Lines have announced the application of a PEAK SEASON SURCHARGE from Italy to Australia and New Zealand as from 12.07.2016:
– NEMO SERVICE: USD. 150 /20′ box – USD. 300
– MSC SERVICE: USD. 175 /20′ box – USD. 350
Although the P.S.S. is a seasonal procedure followed in order to protect allocation on board for all containers to be shipped from Mediterranean sea, the additional charge will remain in place until further notice from ship owners as they expected a very congested time over Italy summer period.
We will of course keep on monitoring the situation and please rest reassured that we shall take care of updating you again as soon as the situation returns to normality and Shipping Lines withdraw the Peak Season Surcharge.
