USA Export LCL Advisory  LCL Chassis Increase
The initial LCL Chassis surcharge was announced August 9, 2012. This was in response to Ocean Carriers gradually eliminating the historical free chassis provision, as well as completely stopping to provide container chassis. Since the initial LCL Chassis surcharge was announced, costs have further increased to truckers and third party chassis pool providers which has been passed on.In order to cover these costs, we will be implementing LCL Chassis surcharge increase as follows:
