The All Ceylon Container Transport Owners Association said that container transport charges will be increased by 10% from the effect of Monday (27).

The Chairman of All Ceylon Container Transport Owners Association Sanath Manjula said the container transport charges are being increased compared to the recent fuel price hike.

He said the export and import cargo transport sector is facing a severe crisis, following the Government’s decision to increase fuel prices and the current shortage.

Whilst acknowledging that importers and exporters are also facing financial difficulties, Sanath Manjula emphasized that container transport owners are compelled to increase charges since a liter of Diesel has increased by Rs. 60/-.
