Following an earlier advisory regarding I-40 Bridge Closure in Memphis, TN, the ongoing congestion in the area as a result of the bridge closure is expected to continue. As a result of continuing market pressure, Maersk will be implementing a congestion surcharge of USD 175 per container to/from Memphis CY.

The Inland Peak Season Surcharge – Export (IPE) and Inland Peak Season Surcharge – Import (IPI) will be effective September 01, 2021. These surcharges will be applicable to

  • All import Store Door (SD) service moving under Maersk provided trucking (MPT), where Maersk is responsible for securing truck power from CY Memphis, TN
  • All export Store Door (SD) service moving under Maersk provided trucking (MPT), where Maersk is responsible for securing truck power to CY Memphis, TN

Your business is important to us. We will continue to monitor the situation; surcharge will be removed when congestion issue improves and deemed unnecessary.

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.
