Meanwhile, CNC Line said it has adjusted the Qingdao, China, terminal handling charge (THC) for all laden shipments within Asia.
The new tariff rates is as follows: RMB770 and RMB1,150 for all 20-foot and 40-foot high-cube dry containers, respectively; RMB850 and RMB1,350 for all 20-foot and 40-foot high-cube reefer containers; and RMB850 and RMB1,350 for all 20-foot and 40-foot high-cube open-top and flat-rack units.
The THC revisions took effect from October 1, 2013.
