Shipping News From RCL Agencies

Original New Date: April 1, 2011

Import & export container volumes continue to show strength in the US market and many vessels are overbooked.  This demand has facilitated an announced GRI from most lines in the below amount.

  • Effective April 1, 2011
  • From / To USA / North Europe as well as other trade lanes
  • Amount: USD 240 per 20′ container & USD 300 per 40′ container

Our opinion is the full GRI can pass only if volumes continue to be strong through the end of this month.  Please be aware this increase is separate from rising fuel increases we are seeing and can expect over the next several weeks or months.


We look forward to updating rates specific to your cargo requirements and appreciate your continued patronage.
