Congestion Surcharge to / from the USA - In the Event of Labor Related Disruption

08 Nov 2012

Hapag-Lloyd informs about the Congestion Surcharge.

We would like to remind you that in the event of labor related disruption to and from the USA, a Congestion Surcharge will apply. This surcharge has been filed in RURE-001 tariff.

Please find the verbiage:

RURE-001 rule 056.1.3

Congestion Surcharge to and from USA

It is recognized that a strike, lockout, work stoppage, work slowdown or other labor-related disruption to operations at any U.S. port (collectively, “labor unrest”) will cause congestion. Accordingly, notwithstanding any other provision of this tariff, in the event of labor unrest, Hapag-Lloyd will implement a Congestion Surcharge effective December 1, 2012, applicable as follows:

For all import cargo received by the Carrier or its agent after the effective date of this rule and scheduled to arrive at any U.S. location, via U.S., Canada or Mexico ports on or after December 1, 2012. (This charge shall be payable on a freight collect basis, although if agreed by Carrier and Shipper, it may be paid on a prepaid basis.)
(Congestion Surcharge Destination) (CGD)

For all export cargo received by the Carrier or its agent after the effective date of this rule at any U.S. location, whether shipped via U.S., Canada or Mexico ports.
(Congestion Surcharge Origin) (CGO)

Subject to those rights and remedies available under Carriers Bill of Lading, other rules contained in this tariff or otherwise, all shipments as noted above shall be subject to a congestion charge in the amount of:

  • USD 800 / 20'
  • USD 1000 / 40'
  • USD 1125 / 40' HC
  • USD 1266 / 45' HC

In the event no labor unrest occurs, this charge shall not be applicable. Once labor unrest has occurred, this charge shall continue to be assessed until such time as Carrier provides notice in this tariff that the impact of the labor unrest on its operations and those of any affected port(s) has ended.
