Published on 12 February 2015

Due to the port congestion in the United States there is a knock-on effect in the air freight cargo. This is causing delays at some destinations.

The problem extends beyond the West Coast and effects the entire US. As a result, all airlines have risen their air freight rates. There is no airline providing normal rates now.

Therefore UGR Japan announces that, air freight rates from Japan to any airports of entry (APOE) in the U.S. will be subject to an increase and will experience delays. The exact difference in costs will be provided case by case.
