EES from West Mediterranean to USA effective June 19, 2021

Ocean carriers continue to announce new surcharges related to the ongoing shipping demand and backlog that has severely impacted container equipment supply and vessel capacity.  

On June 19, 2021 (gate-in date) an Emergency Equipment Surcharge (EES) of US$1000 per container will apply on shipments originating from West Mediterranean to USA.  This includes sailings from France (Fos sur Mer only), Portugal, Spain and Italy, 

This charge applies to shipments regardless of whether the surcharge is listed on your most recent rates.  Please ensure that your finance team knows that the EES is applicable effective June 19, 2021 and will be a valid charge. 

The shipping environment is more complex than ever, and we are active with our ocean carrier partners to prioritize space and equipment for your shipments.  Follow our global market updates on LinkedIn and through NASA notifications direct to your inbox.
