Still simpler shipping from Maersk

[ April 3, 2013   //   ]

Maersk Line says that it is moving ahead with the second phase of its tariff simplification programme – the simplification of local surcharges. It follows “positive customer feedback” from its move towards the end of 2012 to simplify ocean freight surcharges, under which basic ocean freight, declaration fees, carrier security charges, currency adjustment factors and river and canal fees were rolled together.

The second phase of the programme will see local origin and destination handling charges, export and import service fees and origin and destination documentation charges similarly treated, from 1 May.
