CMA CGM has announced its intention to raise rates on the Asia to Europe trades from the 1 October.
Freight of all kinds (FAK) will be reviewed on or before the 14 October, said the line. The new rates are as follows:
- Origin Range: From all Asian ports, including Japan, Southeast Asia and Bangladesh.
- Destination Range: To all Northern European ports, including UK and the full range from Portugal to Finland/Estonia.
- Cargo: Dry cargo, out of gauge cargo, paying empties and reefer cargo.
In addition the carrier has extended its peak season surcharge of US$150/TEU, from the 1 October, until 31 October.
The surcharge will apply to cargo from all the same Asian ports as the FAK rates to the full range of European ports, said the carrier.
