Maersk Line in July will implement a peak-season surcharge for cargo shipped from India to the U.S., Guam and Canada.
The surcharge on dry and reefer cargo will be $320 per 20-foot, $400 per 40-foot, $450 per 40-foot high cube and $505 per 45-foot high-cube container. It will take effect July 15 and will remain in force until further notice.
The Danish carrier said it is imposing the surcharge in the wake of “growing demand and pressure on space as well as equipment.”
Maersk’s move comes as Hapag-Lloyd postponed the implementation of its previously announced peak surcharge of the same amounts on Asia-U.S. cargo from June 15 to July 15.
