China – Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS) for Reefer cargo bound for Tianjin/Xingang

Please be informed that the ports of Tianjin/Xingang are currently experiencing congestion due to stricter inspection and disinfection requirements of reefer imports. Most reefer plugs are already being occupied.


As such, to ensure your reefer cargo remains in premium condition, you are highly recommended to contact your local ANL & CMA CGM representative to change the port of discharge/ destination, otherwise, we may be forced to divert your reefer cargo to alternative ports.

To cover the additional costs, we will apply the following Port Congestion Surcharge (PCS), which is applicable to ANL and CMA CGM:


From: Worldwide

To: Tianjin/Xingang

Cargo: Reefer

Amount: USD 1,250 per Reefer container

Payment: By freight payer

Application: Effective from loading date of 26 November 2020, until further notice


For ongoing units and those which have already been re-routed, a specific surcharge will be calculated at the time of the reloading as soon as space is made available at the ports of Tianjin/Xingang.


Our local office will reach out and advise details if your cargo is affected.

As we try our best to safeguard your cargo, please note that all related costs will be on the Consignee’s account* upon delivery.


For more information and assistance, please contact your local representative.


Thank you for your kind understanding and continued support.
