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 for the holiday seasons and the wonderful gifts 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 the importer or exporter pays.

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