European carriers introduce new Asia charges

European shipping lines have published new prices and surcharges in Asia, after their latest announcements, increasing various charges until the end of the year.

MSC has announced the application of a congestion surcharge (CGS) at the port of Tianjin Xingang, due to the bottlenecks which have affected the delivery and the discharge of its reefer containers.

The new CGS will be US$1,500/reefer from any origin in Europe to the Chinese port and will take effect from 23 November (bill of landing date).

Any other costs such as deviation to alternate port, storage, plug-in, freight will be on account of the freight payer, said MSC in its announcement.
