Dear Valued Client,

Please be advised that shipping lines will be implementing General Rate Increases (GRI's) throughout October 2018.

As of the 1st of October, shipments inbound from South East Asia (including Indian-Sub Continental, Middle East, Southeast Asia and South Asia) will incur the following:

  • US$ 200.00 per 20’ dry or reefer container.
  • US$ 400.00 per 40’ standard and high cube dry or reefer container.

As of the 15th of October, shipments inbound from North East Asia (including China, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong) will incur the following:

  • US$ 300.00 per 20’ dry or reefer container.
  • US$ 600.00 per 40’ standard and high cube dry or reefer container.

This will have an impact on the availability of space leading up to the increase date as many may try to move their goods prior to this. Therefore, it is recommended that customers place orders as soon as possible to avoid the advertised increase and ensure that adequate space is available to move your goods in a timely manner.


Best regards,
