Australia to South East Asia

Dear Valued Customers,

Due to increased costs associated with supplying empty containers in Central Queensland and in order to maintain our high level of service from this region, we would like to advise the implementation of a General Rate Increase (GRI) on all exports shipments from Gladstone & Townsville to East/South East & North Asia and the Indian Sub continent on our South East Asia service from Australia from 1st June, 2012.

The GRI will be applied to all export shipments from Gladstone & Townsville into East/South East & North Asia from Indian Sub continent.

The GRI will be US$150 per TEU, US$300 per FEU effective with a B/L date on or after 1st July, 2012.

We appreciate your continued and on-going support for our business. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact your local Swire Shipping representative.
