GRI Update March 1, 2021
U.S. Import General Rate Increase for Full Container and Less than Container Freight
Carriers have announced a General Rate Increase (GRI) for cargo from Asia to The United States effective March 1, 2021. 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 follow through with implementing this charge, Scarbrough will begin charging GRI on all FCL and LCL cargo that departs these locations on March 1, 2021.
Scarbrough continually works with carriers to waive or mitigate these charges.
If anything changes, we will inform you as applicable.

LCL Cargo: $25 W/M, Min 1 CBM
Effective Date: March 1, 2021
If any mitigation and/or delay of this increase is confirmed, we will pass it along as applicable.
