General Rate Increase (GRI) Nov. 11, 2019
Carlile Transportation Systems is announcing our general rate increase (GRI) effective November 11th, 2019. As a direct response to previously announced rate increases by ocean transportation providers, Carlile will implement a 4.75% GRI on shipments to and from Alaska while Intrastate shipments will increase by 3.95%. The overall impact of this rate increase may vary by specific lane, shipment weight or freight characteristics for all non-contractual customers.
Additionally, ocean carriers have announced a new “terminal charge” to be implemented as part of their permanent cost structure. On January 12th, 2020 Carlile Transportation Systems will add this fee to all northbound over the water shipments.
Carlile continues to invest in our employees, equipment and infrastructure with a focus on customer satisfaction while maintaining competitive rate levels throughout our organization.
If you have questions about our services or these rate changes, please contact your local sales executive.
