Costa Rica Terminal Handling Charge – Increase Postponed

Jan 28, 2019

Dear Valued Customers

King Ocean wishes to advise all customers that ship to and from Costa Rica of the following increase applicable on the previously established Costa Rica Terminal Handling Charge:

Current Effective February 14, 2019

Per Container Southbound

Per Container Northbound

Per Unit/BBK
Units/BBK will be moved on a Free Out Basis

Per M3 (LCL)
$8 per M3 Minimum $20

All Containerized Liner Carriers have been mandated by the Costa Rican Government to operate at the Port Moin Terminal, operated by APM Terminals and must vacate their current terminal locations within the area of Puerto Limon no later than February 1, 2019.

The Port Tariff that will be assessed by APM Terminals at Port Moin Terminal to all Containerized Liner Carriers was approved by the Costa Rican Government.

This mandated move, coupled with the Governmentally approved APM Terminals tariff, will result in increased costs associated with handling all cargo moving into and out of Costa Rica.
