GRI Announcement May 1, 2016
U.S. Import General Rate Increase for
Full Container and Less than Container Freight
Carriers have announced a General Rate Increase (GRI) for North Asia & Southeast Asia to the United States effective May 1, 2016. Based on this information, please be aware that forwarders are required by the FMC to announce possible rate increases 30 days in advance. Please also note that these are carrier announced GRI’s and may be mitigated. If carriers actually follow through with implementing this charge, Scarbrough will begin charging GRI on all FCL and LCL cargo that departs these locations on May 01, 2016.
[All Asia Ports are covered except from French Polynesia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Papaua New Guinea, or New Caledonia Ports]
Scarbrough continually works with carriers to waive or mitigate these charges.
If anything changes, we will inform you as applicable.
