APL Price Announcement Update

From 7 December 2016 onwards, APL price announcements will include information relating to at least the base rate, the bunker charges, the security charges, the terminal handling charges and possible peak season charges instead of the announcement of the General Rate Increase only. This new announcement format is in compliance with new rules defined with and validated by the EU Commission. APL as part of the CMA CGM Group, a leading worldwide shipping group, is determined to conduct its business activities in a responsible, transparent and ethical way.
