Change of Payment Location for ENS Charges as of September 1st, 2019

Dear valued customers,

as a maritime carrier, CMA CGM is obliged to comply with various regulations. A flawless compliance is our utmost priority and in the best interest of our customers.

A regulation of high importance is the filing of the so-called Entry Summary Declaration (ENS): A security assessment which is required by EU customs and which all carriers must submit for cargo inbound into the European Union. In this regard, we kindly ask you to take the following information into consideration:

As of September 1st, 2019, the ENS charge of USD 27 is always to be paid with the freight.

Only exception:

All Asia - North Europe services (FAL) with cargo originating from all Asian ports (incl. Japan, South East Asia and Bangladesh) and which is bound for Northern Europe. In this case the ENS charge remains pre-paid.

Please forward this information to all people concerned within your organization and thank you in advance to include the above in your future calculations. Your cooperation will be highly appreciated.

In case of further questions, please do not hesitate to contact your local sales representative. Your alternative text here...
