Rate increases announced in June 2013 by freight carriers will take effect within a month. These rate hikes affect freight that moves across continents. Officials from Zim, one of the largest international shipping companies in the world, says that increased rates are needed for shippers to stay competitive. Zim also says they’ve worked hard to improve customer service and resources during a time of overall weak shipping trade, and hopes are that everyone will benefit.
Other freight companies and industries are hiking rates too.
