We would like to advise that due to the soaring demand and the Peak Season, which is characterized by severely limited space and scarce availability of equipment, both lines loading on the New Australia Express Service MSC and CMA CGM have announced the intention to introduce a PSS (Peak Season Surcharge).

The PSS amounts and effective dates announced by the Lines are:
(from date of loading in the origin ports)

MSC            USD 200 Per TEU Dry containers
From July 1st, 2020

CMA           USD 100 Per TEU Dry containers
From July 10th, 2020 For NWC and July 20th, 2020 for Mediterranean

Very important: The above is still under negotiation.

Please do not hesitate to contact your local VGL representative for any further information or clarification.
