GRI Announcement July 1, 2018

U.S. Import General Rate Increase for

Full Container and Less than Container Freight

Carriers have announced a General Rate Increase (GRI) for cargo from Asia to The United States effective July 1, 2018.  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 these locations on July 1, 2018.

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

If anything changes, we will inform you as applicable.
