TACA increases eastbound tariff rates
The Trans-Atlantic Conference Agreement said Tuesday its member lines will increase eastbound tariff rates, effective Jan. 1.
The rates will be increased $150 per 40-45-foot container, $120 per 20-foot container, and $8 per weight/measure.
“Despite increases in TACA tariff levels introduced during 2003, the need for the implementation of further TACA tariff rate restoration measures remains as compelling as ever, relative to the provision of the quality of service demanded by shippers,” TACA said in a statement.
Ocean carriers in TACA are Atlantic Container Line, Hapag-Lloyd Container Linie, Mediterranean Shipping Co., A.P. Moller-Maersk Sealand, NYK Line, Orient Overseas Container Line, and P&O Nedlloyd.
