Ocean carriers are proposing a General Rate Increase (GRI) on cargo bound to all points in Canada from Far East and Indian origins; the GRI, previously scheduled for May 1, 2016, is now expected to be implemented on May 15, 2016.
Published GRI levels effective May 15, 2016
For Shipments to all Canadian destinations:
20′ Standard Containers: USD $1,080
40′ Standard Containers: USD $1,200
40′ High-Cube Containers: USD $1,350
45′ Standard Containers: USD $1,520
LCL USD$24 per CBM, min USD $24
Deringer has observed previously implemented GRI’s fluctuating between $100-$400 depending on service, carrier, and container size. Along with our overseas partners, Deringer will try to mitigate the upcoming rate increases; however, the market will ultimately determine carriers’ flexibility.
Deringer will continue monitoring GRI announcements and will work to mitigate additional fees when possible. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
