Singapore-based container carrier APL will apply a peak-season surcharge on cargo shipped from India to the U.S. and Canada.
The proposed surcharge as of Oct. 15 will be $400 per 40-foot container.
“The PSS applies to all cargo moving on vessels via the Suez Canal and all cargo discharged at Pacific coast ports or Vancouver,” APL India said.
APL, Neptune Orient Lines Group's liner unit, also imposed a similar surcharge on shipments from India to Colombia. Starting Oct. 8, the surcharge will be $200 per dry container.
