As operational delays, equipment and space shortages, and vessel backlogs continue to cripple supply chains worldwide, carriers have announced additional surcharges that are scheduled to go into effect in August.

Please click here for a detailed snapshot of the new surcharges and the markets that carriers are targeting at this time.

We expect that other carriers will follow suit to help offset rising transportation costs in the near term. Shapiro will continue to monitor the situation closely for any updates or rate increases as they become available.

For Shapiro customers, please rest assured that all future quotes will reflect the proper surcharges where applicable.
