MELL – General Rate Increase (GRI) – Inbound to Northern Australia


Dear All,

As the shipping industry continue to face challenges such as vessel delays, equipment shortages and volatile market conditions, Mariana Express Lines remains committed to maintain and uphold the highest level of services to all our customers.

Given these circumstances and the need to recover high operational costs and maintain our level of service credibility, Mariana Express Lines will be imposing General Rate Increase (GRI) Surcharge effective 1 April 2022 (B/L On Board Date) for inbound shipments from all loading ports to Northern Australia (Townsville / Darwin). The GRI quantum will be below:

From: All Origins

USD700/20’ (all container types) and USD1400/40’ (all container types) – Townsville / Darwin

The above increase shall be applicable on top of all freight arrangements in place.

Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your local Sales & Customer Service teams.

Thank You
Mariana Express Lines Pte. Ltd.
