MSC Equipment Imbalance Surcharge from Italy and Spain to the USA

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has announced a new equipment imbalance surcharge from Italy and Spain to the USA effective December 9th, 2020.  The charge for US destinations is as follows:

  • USD50 per TEU from Italy to the USA
  • USD75 per container from Spain to the USA

NASA continues to work with ocean carriers to minimize or eliminate congestion surcharges wherever possible.  The demand for empty containers at origin is driving this charge.
