Following our earlier announcement regarding implementation of CAF to all transports to and from Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).
Please be informed that based on the last 30 days the CAF for May 2019 will be at 3.4%.
CAF only applies for customers paying in GBP.
CAF for customers paying in EUR remains 0%.
The CAF is calculated as a % of the freight price and is updated on monthly basis.
Please see below Containerships CAF scale for your guidance.
The CAF surcharge is a variable amount chargeable for all transports to & from the UK depending on the invoicing currency of the customer. It is regularly adjusted in accordance with the value of the Sterling (GBP) against Euro and is in addition to the base rates quoted. Basic freight tariff guideline is available on Containerships web page: http://www.containershipsgroup.com/services/terms-conditions/tariffs. Other Bunker related surcharges, THC (Origin and Destination), Peak season charges and similar charges and Safety and Security related surcharges may also apply and are accessible at the same link.
