LCL Pricing: No rate increases for Q1
Great news for the start of 2024! We are not changing LCL rates for Q1.
Our LCL services enjoyed a strong end to 2023. Customers are increasingly taking advantage of LCL shipments to maximize cash flow and minimize carrying costs. We are pleased to be able to support these efforts by continuing with our existing base pricing.
While we are maintaining our base pricing, we are implementing Industry-wide Emergency pricing due to the surcharges for Panama Canal use and the disruption related to the Red Sea. The Panama Canal rate will be an additional $0.16 per case, (effective January 1st), and the Red Sea surcharge, which has now been clarified, will be $1.70 a case, effective for sailings on or after February 1st. We have not included these charges in our base rate as we hope they are short-term pricing adjustments. These surcharges will be shown as a separate line item on your invoices.

Seasonal Dry LCL Lane
Elenteny Imports is keen to offer green shipping options to reduce the carbon emissions generated by our services. Emissions data is becoming more sophisticated allowing us to track the CO2e (WtW) generated by all-reefer services versus a dry service.
We are pleased to announce that we are launching a seasonal Dry LCL service from France (Le Havre) to New York, available immediately. The service will utilize dry trucking pickup, combined with insulated containers, and will cost $1.21 less per case than our regular all-reefer LCL service. The service will operate until it becomes too warm, typically at the beginning of May when all reefer transport and containers are required. Reach out to our sales team for a quote here.
