Ocean Carrier’s Position on Door Moves

To offset increasing costs and challenges in the drayage market, many ocean carriers are beginning to implement an Emergency Door Service (EDS) surcharge on door moves.  The new ELD mandate and equipment/driver shortages are causing significant delays, and as a result, carriers are levying a fee against shippers to cover such costs or even restricting offering door moves.

We have witnessed many customers changing terms of sale with their suppliers to break out the US trucking.   Please contact your Shapiro team if we can provide any assistance or potential solutions.

The information released by ocean carriers below is subject to change at any time, and Shapiro will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they develop.
