Initially set to commence on 1st November, the surcharge was directed at ocean carriers, with most announcing a passing on of any potential fees to shippers. Its implementation has now been delayed as a result of the ports seeing a significant number of containers cleared from docks.
The Port of Los Angeles shared that “since the fee was announced on Oct. 25, the twin ports have seen a decline of 26% combined in aging cargo on the docks. This encouraging momentum supports a delay in implementation of the fee.”
We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you informed of any updates ahead of 22nd November.Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local Woodland representative or reach out to us here.
