CMA CGM implements congestion surcharge in Senegal

CMA CGM has announced that it will apply a new Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS) following the congestion currently occurring in Dakar, Senegal.

The French shipping company stated that the fee would take effect on 5 October for shipments from the United States, US territories, Colombia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Panama, Venezuela, Argentina, and Ecuador.

CMA CGM will implement a charge of $150 per TEU premium on dry and reefer containers bound for Dakar and Cotonou.

According to CMA CGM, the PCS will be effective from 15 September until further notice.

In August 2023, CMA CGM announced it will stop calling at Iskenderun Port with its NC Levant Express service following the recent heavy congestion in the port.

More recently, CMA CGM adjusted its deployed fleet of vessels running the Liberty Bridge service between North Europe and the US East Coast.
