Price and Surcharge Updates

PCS - Reefer Cargo to Philippines (Manila and Subic ports)


Due to recent developments in Manila, terminal operations and pick-up of inbound containers to Manila and Subic ports has been slow.


Consequently, most reefer plugs at the yards of container terminals in the ports are already being occupied. CMA CGM is then forced to divert reefer cargo to other ports.


To cover the additional costs, CMA CGM will apply the following Port Congestion Surcharge:

Effective March 31st, 2020 (except from USA and Brazil, as from the 30st of April and except from China, not applicable) :


  • Origin: From worlwide (except China)
  • Destination: To Manila and Subic ports
  • Cargo: Reefer only
  • Amount: USD 1 400 per container
  • Payment: As per freight

For ongoing units and those which have already been rerouted, a specific surcharge will be calculated at the time of the reloading as soon as space is made available on these terminals.


Our local office will reach out and advise detials if your cargo is affected. As we try our best to safeguard your cargo, please note that all related costs will be on Consignee's account upon delivery.


Please contact your local CMA CGM office should you require information about any other pricing information.


We thank you for your kind understanding.
