ZIM to push up rates in North Europe

Haifa-headquartered container shipping company ZIM will implement new rate increases in North Europe that will be effective from late April.

Firstly, the Israeli box line will apply a Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) from Israel to ports in North Europe, including North West, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Scan-Baltic Sea, as well as the Port of Valencia in Spain.

Effective from 20 April until further notice, this PSS will be set in all dry cargoes and will be US$300 per 20' and US$600 per 40' containers.

Furthermore, the ZIM will introduce a freight all kinds (FAK) rate increase from the Turkish port of Mersin (TRMER) to North European ports of Flixborough (GBFLX), Antwerp (BEANR), Rotterdam (NLRTM), Hamburg (DEHAM), Le Havre (FRLEH) and Gydnia (PLGDY).

This FAK rate increase, which will take effect on 1 May, will be applied in all dry van 20' and 40' containers as follows:

ZIM said that Russian trades are excluded and that rates are "unaffected by, and do not affect, any tariff notified, published, or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements."
