Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) has announced a public freight all kinds (FAK) increase from Italy to the USA starting May 13, 2022.   

NASA is working to mitigate this increase, but there is the potential that it will apply to our existing ocean carrier contracts.

To: All USA ports 
Effective: May 13, 2022
Increase (to be confirmed): USD 500 per container to US East Coast ports, and USD 1,000 per TEU (twenty foot equivalent) to US West Coast ports 

We will advise should this increase be applicable; in the meantime, for more information on bookings for pending shipments around this time, please reach out to your usual representative.
