CMA CGM introduces congestion surcharge in South Africa

French ocean carrier CMA CGM has announced a new port congestion surcharge (PCS) in South African ports due to the ongoing congestion in the region.

CMA CGM will implement a PCS of US$200 per TEU to Port Elizabeth, Durban and Cape Town, effective from 3 December.

The surcharge will apply to dry and reefer containers arriving at the three South African ports from all the origins across the world, except East and West Africa.
