General Rate Increase – South East Asia, South Asia, Indian-Sub continental and Middle-East  to Australia 15th October

Dear Valued Customers:

The ocean freight rates continue to be below the required level to cover basic operating costs or transportation costs in our Southeast Asia-Australia services. Considering that current levels are unsustainable for the long term, carriers are announcing a rate restoration program for this trade lane.

In order to maintain a high standard service level and a comprehensive liner network, please be advised that with effect from October 15, 2016, freight rates for traffic from Southeast Asia, South Asia, Indian-Sub continental and Middle-East to Australia will be increased by

USD 100/TEU USD 200/FEUUSD 4.00/per cbm

For both dry and refrigerated cargo in the base ocean freight. This increase will apply on top of existing ongoing market rates and will be subject to accessorial surcharges applicable at the time of shipment.
