GRI Announcement from the Far East – January 15, 2016

U.S. Import General Rate Increase for 

Full Container and Less than Container Freight

Carriers have announced a General Rate Increase (GRI) for the Far East, Africa, E. Africa and Middle East to USA effective January 15, 2016.  Based on this information, please be aware that forwarders are required by the FMC to announce possible rate increases 30 days in advance.  Please also note that these are carrier announced GRI’s and may be mitigated.  If carriers actually follow through with implementing this charge, Scarbrough will begin charging GRI on all FCL and LCL cargo that departs Asia on January 15, 2016.

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

If anything changes, we will inform you as applicable.
