U.S. Import General Rate Increase for 

Full Container and Less than Container Freight

Carriers have announced a General Rate Increase (GRI) for the Asia to North America Lane effective May 01, 2015.  Based on this information, please be aware that forwarders are required by the FMC to announce possible rate increases 30 days in advance.

If carriers actually follow through with implementing this charge, Scarbrough will begin charging GRI on all FCL and LCL cargo that departs Asia on May 01, 2015.

Scarbrough continually works with carriers to waive or mitigate these charges.

If anything changes, we will inform you as applicable.
