NOTICE TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS
USA Import LCL Advisory
Congestion surcharge fee at LAX/LGB CFS
We have been notified that, with immediate effect, our CFS in Los Angeles will apply a USD3 w/m min USD10 surcharge on all local release cargo in Los Angeles due to continuous issues with extreme congestion at the port of LAX/LGB.
The missed appointments and long wait time has had a negative impact on the truckers productivity and they have for some time billed dry run charges and wait time without those charges being passed on. The CFS can no longer bear those expenses without compensation. Since there is no end in sight to the congestion issues, the charges will be assessed on all LCL cargo released locally in LAX. There are no charges on IPI cargo at this time.
Charges are payable directly to the CFS at time of pickup and not to Shipco Transport Inc.
