Enclosed is the EVERGREEN announcement of Port Congestion Charge for cargo via USWC ports.
This amount will be started from Nov/17/2014 which is cargo arrival date, kindly note.
Dear Valued Customers,
As you know well, there is ongoing port congestion along the major US west coast ports. Our
service schedule and terminal operation are both seriously disrupted, and that also results
significant increase of operation cost and financial loss. Evergreen has been exercising our
best efforts in mitigating the impacts toward our service level and shipside operation.
However, without foreseeable relief in sight, we are forced to trigger congestion charge
collection per our FMC filing rule 010-C12 ,EGLV # 618 for all cargoes arriving US West Coast
ports effective Nov/17/2014. The quantum of charge is listed hereunder,
USD 800 per 20′ Container
USD 1000 per 40′ Container
USD 1125 per 40′ High Cube Container
USD 1266 per 45′ High Cube Container
Please be advised the congestion charge was first announced in our tariff in 2012 to address
the risk of increased port congestion as result of any labor-related issues, including but not
limited to, labor action, work stoppage, or slow-downs/disruptions. This charge will remain
in effect until further notice.
Regret for the inconvenience caused to you. We thank you for the kind understanding and
we assure you Evergreen will continuously maintain our service for you in all possible way
during this challenging situation.
Should you have any questions, please reach out to local Evergreen sales representatives for
