Dear Valued Customer,

In view of the congestion situation at Xingang Terminal, caused by the new inspection procedure, Xingang port is facing lack of available reefer plugs. As a reflection, COSCO Shipping Lines decided to implement a Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS) for all reefer cargoes from the South America and Central America ports to Xingang, China as from November 25th 2020, until further notice.

We would like to encourage you to hold news shipments to Xingang until the situation improves and for those cargoes already in transit, we incentive the possibility of COD.

At the same time, we kindly remind you that please arrange to pick up the cargo ASAP once it becomes available. This will help to relieve the pressure of reefers plug supply at the terminal.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact our local customer service or sales representatives.

We thank you for your business and look forward to continuously supply, your global transportation needs.

Yours sincerely,
