Port Congestion Charge announcement – USWC    started from Nov/17/2014 which is cargo arrival date

Dear Customers,

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


Sincerely Yours,

Evergreen Line
