JPFC PRESS NOTICE
JAPAN/PHILIPPINES FREIGHT CONFERENCE
Notice to Shippers
Manila Port Congestion Surcharge
For Conventional vessels

Reference is made to our previous notice dated 1st September, 2017.

 

As per the notice, JPFC recently conducted fresh review based on the data covering the period July/August/September 2017 to come up with Manila Congestion Surcharge applicable for November 2017.

 

It should be noted that the underlying calculation result suggested additional cost of USD.0.90/RT as a result of the Congestion.

 

As such, JPFC decided to adjust the October Congestion Surcharge level of USD.0.50/RT upward to USD.1.00/RT, effective 1st November, 2017 until further notice.

 

JPFC will continue to monitor the situation on a monthly basis and review the level of surcharge whenever necessary.

 

Please contact us or Member Lines of this Conference who are happy to respond to any queries you may have on this subject.

 
27th September, 2017. Secretary.
