Major steamship lines have implemented a January 1, 2017, General Rate Increase (GRI) for transpacific cargo from the Far East and India to the US and Canada. Early indications pointed towards a significant increase; Deringer has observed rates fluctuating at, or close to, the announced levels depending on container size and carriers’ surcharges. A subsequent GRI increase is scheduled to be implemented on January 15, 2017. Deringer will continue tracking the status of that increase in the coming weeks.
Rate increase as follows:
GRI for shipments to all US/Canadian destinations – January 1, 2017:
20′ Standard Containers: USD $800
40′ Standard Containers: USD $1000
40′ High-Cube Containers: USD $1125
45′ Standard Containers: USD $1265
LCL: USD $22 per CBM
Deringer will continue to report on carriers’ surcharges and upcoming rate increases, and will work to mitigate fees whenever possible.Please send an email to Deringer’s Marketing Department with any questions.
