GRI AND RATE STRUCTURE ADJUSTMENT
|Dear Valued Customer|
Please be advised that in line with increased costs being faced in the Eastern Pacific Islands trades, Sofrana ANL will be implementing a General Rate Increase of USD 200 per TEU and USD 10 per RT of breakbulk cargo effective 1 March 2021.
We will also take this opportunity to simplify our freight rate structure to the following markets:
New Zealand and Australia to Tonga
New Zealand and Australia to Samoa
New Zealand and Australia to American Samoa
New Zealand to Fiji
New Zealand to Tahiti Current BAF’s (and CAF’s where applicable) are to be rolled into freight rates, and rates will be converted to USD if they are not already The introduction of a New Zealand OTHC on all export cargo to bring Sofrana ANL into line with the rest of the CMA CGM Group trades ex New Zealand The introduction of a DTHC on NZ import cargo to bring Sofrana ANL into line with the rest of the CMA CGM Group trades into New Zealand The freight rates will be adjusted in order to ensure minimal overall effect of the THC implementation. Adjusted freight rates will be communicated to customers prior to the 1 March 2021 implementation date.
Finally, we will also be adjusting our current local Australian Import and Export PSC’s to change to THC’s and bring amounts into line with the other CMA CGM Group trades in Australia. Again, freight rates will be adjusted accordingly to ensure minimal overall impact, and we will communicate the changes to customers prior to the 1 March 2021 implementation date.
Please note that cargo on our Westpac Service to New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, and Solomon Islands will not be subjected to the GRI at this time, however will have the OTHC / DTHC implemented.
We thank you for your understanding.
