Australasia Service Announcement - New Zealand Strike Surcharge - Effective November 1st, 2012
04 October, 2012
Dear Valued Customer,
The ongoing contract discussions between the Maritime Union of New Zealand and the Ports of Auckland, which began in November of 2011, are still not finalized. Despite progress in the negotiations the threat of resumed labor disruption looms.
As a result, so as to protect against incremental costs associated with possible work stoppages, US Lines has forward-filed a New Zealand Strike Surcharge @ $110/TEU, effective for cargo received on or after November 1, 2012.
This Surcharge will not be implemented should no labor disruption ensue.
For further information, please contact your local USL Sales Representative.
We appreciate your continued support of USL!
If you have any questions, please contact your USL representative.
