Implementation of Montreal Low Water Surcharge

Several  carriers have advised they will implement a Low Water Surcharge for all cargo moving via the port of Montreal. This is due to the fact the St. Lawrence River water levels have dropped drastically,  latest levels do not show any improvement and the situation will most likely continue or even deteriorate in the next months.

Charges per carrier as following:

MSC per 15-12: USD 175/20ft & USD 250/40ft

HAPAG per 08-12: USD 180/20ft & USD 250/40ft

Please be guided accordingly.  If you would like to learn about other port options for your cargo, or if you have any questions please contact RCL Agencies at or at 973-779-5900
