' From Asia and the Indian Subcontinent to the United States and Canada inland point intermodal via West or East coasts ports, $600 per dry 40-foot container.
' From North Europe to the Caribbean, Central America and the West Coast of South America, 150 euros per TEU for all container types.

' From all Asia origins to Red Sea, $150 per TEU for all container types.
