Issue Date: November 30, 2012
Dear Valued Customer,
As you know, the East and Gulf coasts risk significantly increased port congestion owing to a labor union dispute that threatens work stoppages after December 31, 2012. As a precaution, CaroTrans International, Inc. is filing a Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS) applicable to all shipments to and from ports in the United States and Canada starting January 1, 2013.
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 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 International, Inc. We appreciate your business.
