Australia to and from Pacific Islands Rate Adjustment

31 Aug 2021

Trade Notice

Dear Valued Customers,

The global shipping industry continues to experience unprecedented challenges,
amplified by the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, NPDL have incurred several increased costs to operate our business
including a dramatic increase in ship prices, increases to charter rates and
container costs due to global shortages. Port congestion continues to impact
capacity and scheduling and our pursuit to maintain the health and safety of our
crew members comes at a high yet necessary cost.
Despite our continuing best efforts to minimize this impact on your business, we
have made the difficult decision to increase our ocean rates to remain
competitive and to sustain the scope and frequency of our services that you
expect from NPDL.

Effective for cargo loaded onboard vessels on or after 1st October 2021, freight
rates will be adjusted at the levels below: 

Note: Australia to Norfolk Islands will be separately covered.

NPDL appreciate your continued understanding as we balance these difficult
times with our steadfast commitment to providing you with regular, reliable, and
affordable shipping services across the Pacific.

Please do not hesitate to contact your local NPDL sales or customer service
representative for any points of clarity.

Yours sincerely
