Seanews reports that the month-long refrigerated container collapse in Tianjin is finally over. The port now returns to normal operation. So, according to Ocean Network Express (ONE), in connection with the improvement of the situation with the acceptance of refrigerated containers in Tianjin, the line will cease to collect an additional charge (CGD), introduced for refrigerated cargo due to congestion, from December 28.
The Shipping magazine reminds that due to the tightening of customs checks and requirements for the disinfection of imported food products, the acceptance of incoming refrigerated containers in Tianjin slowed down and was made with delays. Therefore, many container lines have informed customers of their right to charge additional fees and charges for the incurred costs of handling refrigerated containers at alternative ports, including storage and downtime.
