PROPOSED RATE RESTORATION (GRI) 15TH NOVEMBER 2017 - EX KOREA, CHINA, HONG KONG AND TAIWAN TO AUSTRALIA1 November 2017
TCF have received advice from various shipping lines, that they are proposing to implement a Rate Restoration (RR/GRI) effective from sailings on / after 15th November 2017. With space at a premium this side of Christmas, please try to book well in advance to ensure we are able to assist your suppliers with confirmed bookings.
This increase would apply to all imports from Korea, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan to Australia Trade. Please find attached an example of this notice from one fo the carriers.
Should the proposed increase go ahead, which is highly likely, the GRI increases/surcharges will be levied as follows, including LCL increases as listed below:
LCL: USD 12.00 per w/m
20’: USD 300.00
40’: USD 600.00
As we have done previously, TCF and our partners will be monitoring the market situation closely and continuing our efforts to mitigate the FCL GRI levels.
We appreciate your support and if you have any questions or require further information regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your local sales or customer service representative.
