Ocean carriers are proposing a Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) on US/Canada bound cargo from Far East and Indian origins. The PSS is anticipated on June 15, 2016. In the US/Canada, a previous General Rate Increase (GRI) took effect as scheduled on June 1, 2016, and the next anticipated GRI is scheduled for July 1, 2016 (Deringer has observed present GRI rates fluctuating between $150-$600 depending on service/carrier and container size).
Published PSS levels effective June 15, 2016, for US/Canada
20’Standard Containers: USD $360
40′ Standard Containers: USD $400

Deringer, along with our overseas partners, will continue monitoring GRI/PSS announcements and will work to mitigate additional fees when possible. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
