Intermarine plans rate hike
Intermarine, managing agent for Industrial Maritime Carriers, said the carrier will implement a general rate increase on all its services to and from South America, effective Sept. 14.
Spokesman Alberto Mejia said the breakbulk increase will be $10 per ton weight or measure. Container rates will go up a similar amount.
He said the rate hike was due to increased stevedoring and other costs. He said this was the first general rate increase for the New Orleans-based carrier in about four years.
Intermarine also said its Houston office is moving Aug. 27. The new office details are Intermarine LLC, 16801 Greenspoint Park Drive, Suite 200, Houston, TX 77060, phone (281) 885-3500 or (800) 229-8701, e-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org.
