Contingency Adjustment Charge (CAC) on all commodities and equipment types

Dear Customer,

Due to recent security concerns in the Red Sea and to ensure the safety of our cargo and crew, we will be rerouting vessels via alternative routes, which may result in extended transit times.

We understand this disruption may cause challenges for your business, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. We are working diligently to resume normal operations in the Red Sea as soon as it is safely possible. In the meantime, to offset the increased operational costs associated, we will be implementing a Contingency Adjustment Charge (CAC) on all commodities and equipment types.

Additional details as follows:

  • Effective date: January 15th, 2024 (sail date)
  • Contingency Adjustment Charge (CAC) quantum: USD 1000 per 20 DV/RF and USD 1500 per 40 DV/HC/RF
  • From all Canadian POL to all PODs in United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Iraq, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Maldives, Bangladesh

For further information concerning this charge, please contact your local MSC Canada office.

Best Regards, 

MSC (Canada) Inc.
