China - Revision of Origin Terminal Handling Charges (OTHC) and Shipping Instruction Amendment Fee
In line with recent market developments in China, APL has reviewed the Origin Terminal Handling Charges (OTHC) applicable to APL operations in Chinese ports, and we are pleased to inform that we will be adjusting the OTHC with effect from 20 March 2019. Please refer to the table below for the revised OTHC.
The revised OTHC will apply to new ocean carriage agreements (including for long-term and spot) entered between APL and our customers on or after 20 March 2019, and is subjected to further adjustments. From time to time, APL will adjust our OTHC in consideration of our actual costs incurred and in accordance with legal requirements.
In addition, APL will be adjusting the Shipping Instruction Amendment Fee from CNY 450 to CNY 400 per BL.
The FAK Basic Ocean Rates do not include and are subject to Bunker related charges, Terminal Handling Charges (Origin and/or Destination), Peak Season Surcharge, Security related Surcharges, and similar charges, which can be found here. In some cases, the amount of one or several of the aforesaid items are nil. Other charges such as contingency and local charges may also apply. All out ports will be subjected to add-ons.
Please contact your local APL representative if you need any assistance. We thank you for your business and continued support.
