Subject: Rate Restoration Middle East to East Africa Trade / Effective from 15th April 2016
Dear Valued Customer,
The ocean freight rates continue to be below the required level to cover basic operating costs or transportation costs on our Middle East to East Africa service.
Considering that current levels are unsustainable for maintaining the present product offering, we are announcing a rate restoration programme for this trade lane.
In order to maintain a high service level and a comprehensive liner network, please be advised that with effect from 15th April 2016 the basic ocean freight rates for the traffic from the Middle East to East Africa will be increased by USD 100 / TEU for both dry and refrigerated cargo. This increase will apply on top of existing rates and will be subject to additional surcharges applicable at the time of shipment.
Scope: Middle East to East Africa (Zanzibar)
Rate restoration: USD 100 per TEU (dry and refrigerated)
First effective vessels from Jebel Ali:
