Would you like to know what a certain transport term means? Click on the first letter of the term below.
As from early August, an enormous peak arises in the transports from the Far East to the West. This usually lasts until early November. Consequently, the shipping companies impose a Peak Season Surcharge. This surcharge is levied for all shipments from Asia (with the exception of Japan). The shipping companies reserve the right to extend the PSS, if so dictated by the circumstances.
