July 04: MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company has announced it will institute a war risk surcharge for all cargoes moving to and from the Arabian Gulf. The move follows CMA CGM and X-Press Feeders adding charges in the wake of six tanker attacks in and around the Strait of Hormuz over the last two months. MSC is charging $40 per teu, $4 more than CMA CGM, for all cargoes calling Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the Saudi Arabian ports of Dammam and Jubail and to the United Arab Emirates. The surcharge kicks in for all trades on July 8 apart from to and from the US and China, which will start on August 1. (Source: Splash 247)
