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:

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

Thank you for using Carotrans. We appreciate your business.
