North America Dangerous Cargo Surcharge for Tank Containers on Canadian National Railway
We would like to announce an update to our North America Dangerous Cargo Service (Inland Haulage Import) and Origin Dangerous Cargo Service (Inland Haulage Export) surcharges.
Effective June 1, 2020, for any hazardous/dangerous commodities loaded in Tank containers moving on the Canadian National Railway, these surcharges will be increased to $350 USD per container. This increase is necessary for cost recovery, as Canadian National Railway has implemented a surcharge applicable to hazardous Tank containers due to the lack of ability to double-stack them on the rail.
Please note that for any non-hazardous Tanks, hazardous Tanks moving on other railroads, and all dry and refrigerated cargo moving on the rail, the surcharges will remain at $250 USD.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for doing business with us.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your local sales or customer service representative. You will find contact details of our local offices on Maersk website.
