Mærsk wishes to advise our customers that the recent increase in costs for transportation of cargo in Paraguay is causing significant constraints on supply chains. Over past weeks we have done our outmost to deliver your cargo whilst managing the current situation as best as possible. However, still we are experiencing a significant increase in overall operational costs.

To enable us to continue to connect your supply chain, Mærsk wishes to advise our customers that we will be implementing a Congestion Fee. The congestion fee will be applicable to all Export and Import containers with origin or destination Paraguay.

  • CFO (Congestion Fee Origin) from Paraguay to World
  • CFD (Congestion Fee Destination) from World to Paraguay

The tariff levels are as follows

We are monitoring the situation and depending on the development we will determine if further measures need to be taken.

For your reference, we have also included the levels and the rate structure for some sample corridors (Short-Term) from Algeciras, Spain to Asuncion, Paraguay valid from today until further notice. These charges may be changed in the future and we will notify you accordingly.

  • The above sample corridor is also subject to other applicable surcharges, including local charges and contingency charges.
  • These rates are unaffected by, and do not affect, any tariff notified, published or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.
  • For trades subject to the US Shipping Act or the China Maritime Regulations, quotations or surcharges that vary from the Maersk tariff shall not be binding on Maersk unless included in a service contract or service contract amendment that has been filed with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) or the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, as applicable.

We regret having to implement this fee, and recognize the challenge it brings on you, but hope for your understanding. We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing working with you in the future.
