Dear Valued Customer,
Due to continuing increase in costs associated with managing COVID-19 requirements, Swire Shipping wishes to advise that we will be implementing a COVID Compliance Fee.
The surcharge will cover introduced sanitary fees at terminals and COVID-19 testing which is required for Swire Shipping to remain compliant with various department policies on this trade lane.
This charge will be reviewed as the requirements for COVID-19 change.
All containers loading on the Polynesia Service, to and from the US West Coast, will be subject to the surcharge, effective 15th March 2021:
• Per 20’ Container – USD 12.00
• Per 40’ Container – USD 24.00
Swire Shipping is committed to maintaining a reliable and long-term sustainable service ex the US West Coast into the Pacific, to do so we must comply with protocols and requirements while dealing with this global pandemic.
We appreciate your continued support. If you require any further information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your local representative.
