Port congestion, shipping companies impose congestion surcharge

Release time: 2023-04-12   Browsing:122次
The port of Iskenderun is still out of service as the effects of the earthquake in Turkey continue. To ensure normal logistics, a large number of goods were diverted to the nearby port of Mersin and then continued to be transported via inland services. This has led to severe congestion at Mersin Port, where the terminal is approaching maximum capacity. 
Maersk announced late last month that it would stop taking spot bookings to and from the port of Mersin until further notice, and was evaluating diversion options for Izmir. Considering the current operating situation of Mersin, Turkey, CMA CGM will implement the port congestion surcharge. 
Finally, CMA CMA has revised the Panama Canal surcharge, effective April 15.
