As a result, our Guam, CNMI and Micronesia rates will increase by like amounts for full container loads. For less-than-container load (LCL) cargo, our Customer rates will be raised based on various factors, including the commodity, density, and current costs. These changes will take effect for Guam and CNMI with shipments sailing on or after January 30th, 2022 and for Micronesia, shipments sailing on or after February 6th, 2022. Please contact your Salesperson to discuss any adjustments to your rate levels.

At this time no adjustment will be made to the terminal handling charge (THC) for 2022.

We thank you in advance for your understanding in these matters. Should you have any questions, please contact your local Salesperson or our Customer Service Support Center at 1-800-488-4888 or 1-310-537-2000, Ext. 2020.
