General Rate Increase - North East Asia to Australia - Effective 1 April 2014


Dear all Valued Customers

Please take note of the following media release in relation to shipping line announcements on freight rate increases ex Asia to Australia.

General Rate Increase (GRI) – North East Asia to Australia

To ensure the continued provision of high quality services and sufficient capacity to cater for our customer requirements, Maersk Line is implementing the next phase of our recovery program with effect from 1st April 2014.

Freight rates from North East Asia (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea) to Australia will be increased by USD 500 per TEU and USD 1,000 per fee.

This rate increase is a reflection of the current unsustainable rate levels that will not allow shipping lines to continue offering their current service portfolio.

Please contact your assigned customer solutions representative if you have any questions.
