Customer Reminder Cosco Shipping Lines UK Ltd – Import Landside Surcharges 2019

Dear Customer,
This is to remind you that Cosco Shipping Lines UK Ltd are reviewing a number of Import surcharges for 2019 and would like to advise you of the following changes:
UK Carrier Haulage Surcharge
As part of our programme to improve our Carrier Haulage product offered to customers Cosco Shipping Lines UK Ltd will implement a UK Haulage Surcharge. This will apply to all deliveries utilising Carrier Haulage and will now become effective from week commencing 7th January 2019.
The surcharge will be £50.00 per container and will be reviewed on a monthly basis.
The need to implement a haulage surcharge emanates from a number of variable factors:
– The withdrawal of rail freight daily services and subsequent congestion on the rail network.
– Port congestion since June 2018 when Felixstowe migrated to a new operating system software that is still reducing operational performance versus pre-June levels.
– Insufficient number of C+E (class 1) qualified drivers resulting in lack of available traction resource.
– Delays to vehicles as a result of road congestion caused by long extensive roadworks on main arterial routes.
– The need to employ additional staff to process haulage re-booking.
– Increased costs from suppliers as a result of the haulage market prevailing conditions.
Vehicle Demurrage
Vehicle demurrage will increase to:
Vehicle free time at site: 3 hours unloading allowed, thereafter charges of GBP 50.00 per hour apply DV/HQ container and GBP 60.00 per hour apply FR/OT container.

We have reviewed our UK Carrier haulage terms & conditions a copy of which are attached to this circular.

Thank you for your continued support.
