IRA recommend RR, effective 22nd September, 2017

In view of increasing demand in advance of Golden Week holidays in China and given the prevailing unsustainable freight rates, it is IRAfs recommendation to implement Rate Restoration with the target amount of USD.200/TEU, effective 22nd September, 2017.

The foregoing RR guideline recommendation will be applicable from all Asia (including Japan) to all ME destinations under the scope of IRA.

As a discussion agreement, it should be clearly noted that the recommendation is posed to individual IRA Members, on a voluntary, non-binding basis. Any IRA Members are free to voluntarily follow the recommendation on an individual basis or take independent actions not only in terms of quantum but also effective dates through individual negotiations between customers and Members.

Please do not hesitate to contact us or Member Lines of the Agreement who are always happy to respond to any queries you may have on this subject.

@Secretary.@

22nd August, 2017.
