Hapag-Lloyd has announced the implementation of a peak season surcharge (PSS) of US$150/container on agricultural products such as dried legumes and other products on the eastbound trade from Canada via Port of Loading (POL) Vancouver to South Europe on the Mediterranean Pacific Service (MPS).

The German carrier will introduce this PSS from 1 December in order to "provide its customers with a high level of service, equipment supply as well as vessel space," it said in its announcement.

In the meantime, Hapag-Lloyd has changed its empty containers (MT) return information at short notice in Canada due to the increased congestion levels at CP Vaughan and CN Brampton / Mississauga Intermodal Service Centre (MISC), which has caused both rail operators to enforce restrictions on the return of empties to those ramps.

That means "the need for us to secure additional empty storage capacity at relatively short notice," said Hapag-Lloyd, which also pointed out that, "these facilities are also becoming congested as all lines look for alternative return locations."

Therefore, the Hamburg-based firm had to change its MT return information in Toronto, as follows:

Hapag-Lloyd's MT return information for all Canadian destinations can be reviewed on its official website: Hapag-Lloyd.

Furthermore, Hapag-Lloyd has announced that effective from 4 January 2021, eManifest house bills must be used in lieu of supplementaries for imports into Canada as per customs notice (CN) 20-28. A six-month period of informed compliance will begin as of this date, thereafter non-compliant shipments may receive penalties.

In order to comply with CN 20-28, the German carrier will discontinue filing supplementaries for imports into Canada by 31 March 2021. Forwarders will need to make alternate arrangements to file eManifest house bills with one of the options that Hapag-Lloyd provides:

It is important to note that Hapag-Lloyd will continue filling supplementaries for in-transit and freight remaining on board (FROB).
