PEAK SEASON SURCHARGE
CARIBBEAN ISLANDS

Dear Valued Customer,

Crowley Caribbean Services announces a temporary Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) to be effective October 7, 2012 through December 16, 2012.
 
The temporary PSS of $150 per TEU will be applied southbound from the United States to the Caribbean, Virgin Islands and British Virgin islands, and from San Juan, Puerto Rico to the Caribbean, Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands. A significantly higher demand for liner transportation is projected during this peak season time period which results in a shortage of containers and vessel space availability for exports from the United States & Puerto Rico on cargo destined to the Caribbean. This surcharge will enable carriers to recover the higher costs resulting from the increased volumes including equipment positioning, on hiring of additional equipment to cover the increased volume, labor overtime and port congestion.  This surcharge will be applicable to all open tariff and service contract rates, and will be assessed as follows:

Equipment

20′

$150

40′

$300

Over 40′

$338

Vehicles < 700 cft

$88 each

Crowley Caribbean Services will continue to monitor fuel prices and make adjustments on an as needed basis.
