Notice to Customers | New Infrastructure Surcharge – Sydney Terminal | December 18th, 2017

Dear Customer,


Cooltainer, a Division of Kuehne + Nagel Limited, New Zealand wish to advise all our customers that we will be implementing an Infrastructure Surcharge on all FCL – Import and Export – Effective 1st January 2018.

Property costs at the Terminals have risen considerably in recent years including material increases, council rates, land tax, rent and maintenance. The Terminals are now investing in critical infrastructure to keep up with expected growth, and greater peaks and troughs in cargo arrival patterns.


For this to take place, please be advised of the new surcharge, which we will need to pass onto our customers


  • Sydney – AUD 45 per container


If you have any questions or concerns surrounding this increase please contact your Local office directly.


Please accept this advice as notification that this charge will be invoiced out on any shipments arriving on or after the 1st January 2018.


Thank you for your support, and we look forward to continuing as your service provider in the future.


Yours sincerely,

Phil Abraham | Director of Reefer & Perishables – New Zealand & Australia
