PCS - Reefer Cargo to Philippines (Manila and Subic ports)
Due to recent developments in Manila, terminal operations and pick-up of inbound containers to Manila and Subic ports has been slow.
Consequently, most reefer plugs at the yards of container terminals in the ports are already being occupied. APL is then forced to divert reefer cargo to other ports.
To cover the additional costs, we will apply the following Port Congestion Surcharge:
Effective 31 March 2020
(except from USA and Brazil, which takes effect from 30 April; not applicable to China):
Origin: From worldwide (except China)
Destination: To Manila and Subic ports
Cargo: Reefer only
Amount: USD 1400 per container
Payment: As per freight
For ongoing units and those which have already been rerouted, a specific surcharge will be calculated at the time of the reloading as soon as space is made available on these terminals.
Our local office will reach out and advise details if your cargo is affected. As we try our best to safeguard your cargo, please note that all related costs will be on Consignee's account upon delivery.
Please contact your local APL office should you require information about any other pricing information.
We thank you for your kind understanding.
