Maersk doubles surcharge for queues
The wait time when calling in at Manilla is now so long that Maersk, with effect from November 1, raises its queue surcharge for the port to double – from 150 to 300 dollars per TEU.
It is feared that the queuing in Manila will continue into the new year, despite a ban on driving trucks through the city, has been cleared.
Maersk operates the local feeder services in Asia through the company MCC Transport.
