Bangladesh – Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS) for cargo bound for Chittagong
Due to recent developments in Bangladesh, terminal operations and pick-up of inbound containers has been slow. Consequently, the yards in Chittagong are reaching full capacity, and most reefer plugs are already being occupied. As such, we are forced to divert reefer cargo to other ports.
To cover the additional costs, we will apply the following Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS):
(except from U.S. and Brazil, which takes effect from 10 May)
Origin: From worldwide (except Intra-Asia origins)
Destination: Chittagong, Bangladesh
Cargo: Reefer only
Amount: USD 1300 per container
Payment: By Freight Payer Party
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.
As we try our best to safeguard your cargo, please note that all related costs will be on the Merchant’s account upon delivery.
Our local office will reach out and advise details if your cargo is affected.
For more information and assistance, please contact your local representative. Thank you for your kind understanding and continued support.
