Severe Limitations on Intermodal Freight moving to Inland USA Points
Most steamship lines have severely limited the intermodal freight they will accept, to move from the US Coasts to Inland Interior US points.
• ONE is now nearly completely stopping IPI bookings.
• OOCL/CMA-CGM stopped accepting most IPI bookings.
• HMM/Yang Ming/Cosco, and Evergreen, have stopped taking almost all IPI bookings.
• MSC is still accepting some bookings, but has increased the inland fee significantly, when they
do accept a booking.
Most steamship lines have not issued formal letters like ONE has; they simply are refusing to take these bookings.
