MSC raising Paraguay feeder costs

   Mediterranean Shipping Co. said it has increased the feeder costs of all imports into Paraguay with immediate effect.

   The Swiss liner carrier said an increase in imports and constrained barge capacity in the South American nation is necessitating the increase, from 375 euros to 650 euros for a 20-foot container and from 775 euros to 1,075 euros for a 40-foot container.
