CMA CGM Announces Surcharges

French ocean carrier CMA CGM plans to implement "rate restoration surcharges" from Asia to Europe and Africa in the run-up to the Chinese New Year in January.  

Effective Dec. 15, the carrier will impose a surcharge of $575 per 20-foot-equivalent unit from all Asian ports, including those in Japan, Southeast Asia and Bangladesh to the west Mediterranean, Adriatic, east Mediterranean, Black Sea and North Africa. It plans another $350-per-TEU surcharge on the same routes on Jan. 10.

The carrier also will impose a "Panama Canal surcharge" of 150 euros per TEU on its Panama Direct service linking Europe and the South Pacific Islands, effective Jan. 14.
