A.P. Moller-Maersk (Maersk) has implemented a new Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) from the Asia Pacific area to the US and Canada.

The PSS amount for the relevant trade for various commodities and container types is as follows:

The above rates are also subject to other applicable surcharges, including local charges and contingency charges.

These rates are unaffected by and do not affect, any tariff notified, published, or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.

For trades subject to the US Shipping Act or the China Maritime Regulations, quotations or surcharges that vary from the Maersk tariff shall not be binding on Maersk unless included in a service contract or service contract amendment that has been filed with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) or the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, as applicable.

Last month, Prologis, Inc. (PLD) and Performance Team, a Maersk Company, announced the opening of Southern California’s largest heavy-duty electric vehicle (EV) charging station.

More recently, Maersk reported signs of further port congestion, especially in Asia and the Middle East, and an additional increase in container freight rates.
