Tanzania has been facing a trucking crisis for a couple of months now, and it is more and more difficult to move cargo from Tanzania to Zambia within acceptable deadlines due to the lack of trucks. This situation is unfortunately also affecting market trucking rates.

CMA CGM is implementing an “Intermodal Congestion Surcharge” of USD 500/container on all carrier haulage from Tanzania to Zambia, and this with immediate effect.

This charge will be automatically invoiced under CAR75 “On Carriage Compensation”
