Please be advised that effective Dec 1st, 2019, ocean carriers will be increasing their FCL and LCL rates to conform with the new IMO (International Maritime Organization) 2020 Low Sulphur Regulation.
This regulation requires all sea-going vessels worldwide to reduce their sulphur emissions by 85%. This will limit sulphur in fuel oil used on board ships operating outside designated emission control areas. This will have a significant global effect on the environment and human population, especially those living close to ports and coastal areas.
Due to the complex nature of its global implementation, rates have not yet been provided by the major carriers. Once the new rates are available, we will send out communication updates on this matter.
If you have further questions, please speak to your respective sales professionals or call 1800.268.9994.
