Caribbean Islands – Peak Season Surcharge Oct 6, 2013 through Dec 31, 2013


Dear Valued Customer,

Crowley Caribbean Services announces a temporary Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) to be effective October 6, 2013 through December 31, 2013.

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:







Over 40′


Vehicles < 700 cft

$88 each
