February 13, 2019

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:


Effective February 24, 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.

Please contact your sales representative for further information.

Thank you for your continued support.
