Announcement on the Adjustment of Terminal Handling Charges (THC)

Dear customers,

In appreciation of your support and based on a commercial decision by Maersk Line China, we are acting to modify the average Terminal Handling Charges (THC) with effective date 1st April. Please find the new THC level for individual China ports listed at the end of this advisory

The average THC across China will be adjusted from RMB 681,05/TEU to RMB 566,02/TEU.1

The new THC level will be applied to all spot rates and fixed term contracts signed from 1st April onward. All fixed term contracts, negotiated or renegotiated from 1st March onward and effective from 1st April onward, will also be subject to the new THC level.

For your reference, we have also included the levels and the rate structure for some sample corridors to/from Europe valid from today until further notice. These charges may be changed in the future and we will notify you accordingly.

 

  • The above rates are also subject to other applicable surcharges, including local charges and contingency charges.
  • These rates are unaffected by, and do not affect, any tariff notified, published or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.
  • For trades subject to the US Shipping Act or the China Maritime Regulations, quotations or surcharges that vary from the Maersk Line tariff shall not be binding on Maersk Line unless included in a service contract or service contract amendment that has been filed with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) or the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, as applicable

We thank you for your support for Maersk Line. For any questions regarding the remodeling of THC calculation, please feel free to contact your local customer service or sales representatives. You will find contact details of our local office on www.maerskline.com.

Sincerely,
Maersk Line
