General Rate Increase (GRI) - United States and Canada to Pacific Islands

(San Francisco, CA)…The global as well as regional trade conditions continue to impact our operation. Strong demand for shipping capacity combined with ongoing port and terminal congestion in both Long Beach and Oakland continue to cause cost escalations which we cannot fully absorb.

We will therefore have to increase our freight rates from the U.S. and Canada effective as of October 15, 2021 (receipt of cargo) to the Pacific Islands in the following amounts:

• USD 350/20’ all equipment types

• USD 700/40’ all equipment types

This rate adjustment applies to all tariff and contract cargo (where applicable) to American Samoa, Samoa, Tahiti, Tonga and Fiji.

Hamburg Süd remains committed to delivering the best possible transportation services to our valued customers and we hope you will understand the necessity for this increase.

Please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions that you may have. Thank you for your continued support.
