Due to recent developments in the ports of Fuqing Fuzhou, China, terminal operations and pick-up of inbound containers have been slow. Consequently, most reefer plugs at the yards of container terminals in the ports are already being occupied. CMA CGM is then forced to divert reefer cargo to other ports.
To cover the additional costs, CMA CGM will apply the following Port Congestion Surcharge:
Effective July 21st, 2021, loading date (except from US & Brazil: August 21st, 2021) :
- Origin: From Worlwide origins
- Destination: To Fuqing Fuzhou, China
