Marine Atlantic has recently notified The Day & Ross Transportation Group, along with all businesses and industries that utilize the ferry services to and from Newfoundland, that they will implement a rate increase for commercial vehicles effective April 1, 2017.
Therefore, effective Saturday, April 1st, we will be increasing our current cost recovery ferry surcharges for all shipments going to or from Newfoundland via Marine Atlantic Ferries as follows:
- LTL – Ferry Additional Charges - $1.74 per shipment
- TL – Ferry Additional Charges - $8.93 per shipment (7,500 pounds to 39,999 pounds)
- Truckload shipments of 40,000 pounds or greater will be subject to an additional charge of $39.24 for freight to Newfoundland and an additional charge of $19.62 for freight from Newfoundland to the mainland
This is a straight “pass through” of costs and we have not added any additional increases to cover our own administrative costs. If, at any stage we are advised that the increases have been reduced or eliminated, we will immediately pass these savings back to you.
Should you require more clarification or have any questions, please contact your Account Manager.
