Full Container and Less than Container Freight
Carriers have announced a General Rate Increase (GRI) for cargo from Asia (except Japan), Australia, New Zealand, East Africa to The United States effective June 1, 2017.

Scarbrough continually works with carriers to waive or mitigate these charges.
If anything changes, we will inform you as applicable.
