Carriers Announce Suspension of Port Congestion Surcharge
For the second time, six ocean carriers have announced they will suspend the Port Congestion Surcharge until further notice. APL, CMA CGM, Cosco, NYK Lines, OOCL and Yang Ming have all indicated they will temporarily suspend the previously re-instated congestion surcharge. We expect other carriers to follow and suspend the congestion surcharge as well. Carriers chose to suspend the first congestion surcharge due to pressure from shippers and scrutiny from the Federal Maritime Commission. WWL will continue to monitor for new developments and advise once more information is available. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local WWL account manager.
