We would like to inform you that current situation in transportation market forced us to conclude, that we have to apply immediate increase on our inland rates for Czech Republic and Slovakia by flat amount of 150 EUR per container which is driven mainly by significant trucking cost increase. This change will be effective as of 1/12/2022 based on PCD* date.
You can always find applicable tariff rates here – Inland price lookup.
However please be aware that mentioned changes will be reflected on our websites with 1 months delay due to FMC regulations so in the period between 1st DEC 22 and 1st Jan 23 you still might see old rates on the website.
Unfortunately this is not final adjustment to our tarif rates and further changes are expected to happen from 1/1/2023. We are closely monitoring the situation on the market with our main partners and we are already preparing final inland rates and conditions update for next year.
As you might know the situation on the market is very dynamic since the beginning of this year mainly due to uncertainty about diesel and electricity prices development. At the same time we are experiencing very high inflation across Europe and all of those factors are pushing current prices much higher then we were used to in the past.
It is always our intention to provide our customers with best possible service at most competitive cost but as already mentioned this year is unique in many ways and there are many external factors that are not in our control and we have to react to those in order to keep the high standards of our service level.
For Non-FMC shipments, PCD is the Estimated Time of Departure (ETD) of the first vessel in the latest booking confirmation issued upon customer request.
For FMC shipments, PCD is the date on which Maersk A/S or one of its authorised agent(s) takes possession of the last container listed on the transport document. For FMC, surcharges will be applicable from 1 January 2023 as per FMC regulations.
For Import shipments (i.e. inland leg at destination port hired later to cargo departure from origin port) the inland tariff rate calculation refers to PCD while EEI surcharge price calculation refers to Vessel Arrival date at cargo destination port (ETA).
Note: FMC regulated trades are shipments exiting or entering a port in the United States, Guam, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa or Puerto Rico(US)
