Peak Season Surcharge

Between June and October of every year, cargo movement between the main trade lanes Asia/Europe and Asia/America peaks, in preparation of the holiday seasons and the wonderful gifts that we receive.

Taking advantage of this peak season rush while also ensuring service reliability and efficiency, the shipping lines impose a surcharge known as Peak Season Surcharge which is paid by the importer or exporter.

Generally, this charge ranges between USD 150-300/per container and in some cases it can make or break a deal.
