Carotrans Service Advisory

Introduction of LCL service to the Port of Itapoa, Brazil from CFS receiving locations in the USA

CaroTrans will be changing our routing of LCL consolidations previously destined to Itajai, Brazil to the updated and more efficient Port of Itapoa in response to underlying ocean carrier vessel routing changes off the East Coast of the United States.

The Port of Itapoa is located in the Brazilian state of Santa Clarita bordering Sao Francisco do Sul and fifty three miles north of Itajai.

CaroTrans LCL rates for Itapoa will be set at the same levels as Itajai and the latter port will be removed from our LCL pricing matrix as of 11/4/2014.

Please contact your local CaroTrans office if you have further questions or concerns

Customer Advisory 14-004: Port Congestion Surcharge

Port Congestion Surcharge 

The current labor contract between the International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU) and the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) ends July 1st, 2014 which puts at risk port operations on the US West Coast as well as the rest of the country if a work action were to be prolonged. To date there is no clear indication of progress of the ongoing negotiations.

In anticipation of significantly increased port congestion due to potential labor issues, underlying carriers have announced congestion surcharges. Similarly and in response to the increased cost, CaroTrans International, Inc. is filing a Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS) applicable to all shipments to and from all ports in the United States starting July 1st, 2014.

In the event of a labor strike and subsequent congestion, all contract and LCL tariff rates will be subject to the PCS as filed:

 

Origin

Destinations

Type

Amount

Effective   Date

All USA Origins

All Overseas Destinations

All Overseas Origins

All USA Destinations

Please note that this is a forward filing. Without work stoppage and subsequent congestion impairing operations, this surcharge and related tariff filings are null and void.

Please contact your local sales representative if you have any questions.

Thank you for using Carotrans. We appreciate your business.
