I have never imported before. This is the first import I have had from America and I have found R W Freight to be very helpful in imparting knowledge to me and guiding me through the process. Their customer service is excellent, the persons appointed to look after me have been very informative and advised me all delays in the vessel sailing and I have been able to inform my clients. I feel completely confident and safe in R W Freight's hands!

Reduced freight volumes from China and rest of Asia

There has been a slight reduction in freight volumes from Asia to Northern Europe; in June 2008 there was a 0.48% reduction compared with last year.  For this reason, shipping lines have decided to postpone charging the Peak Season Surcharge.  This surcharge is recommended every year by the Far Eastern Freight Conference; usually shipping lines adhere to surcharges and rates recommended by the FEFC, but as volumes are dropping, they think that imposing a surcharge will depress volumes still further.  Some effect may be attributed to the Olympic games, as China has closed or re-located factories around Beijing in order to improve air quality for the athletes. The FEFC has not withdrawn its recommendation and is continuing to monitor the volume of freight being shipped; they have not withdrawn a PSS since October 2005.
