The Danish liner operator Maersk has confirmed the implementation of congestion surcharges in several ports across the world.
Furthermore, the Copenhagen-based carrier will apply a congestion fee of US$150 per 20′ and US$200 per 40′, 45′ and high cube (HC) dry and reefer boxes in Paraguay.
Moreover, Maersk will introduce a congestion surcharge of US$175 per container to and from Memphis CY, due to the ongoing congestion in the area as a result of the I-40 Bridge closure at the city of Memphis in Tennesse.
The Inland Peak Season Surcharge – Export (IPE) and Import (IPI) will be applicable from 1 September and to all import and export Store Door (SD) service moving under Maersk provided trucking (MPT), “where Maersk is responsible for securing truck power from CY Memphis.”
