Tropical Shipping Replaces LCL Hazardous Materials Fee for all LCL Cargo Moving between the Continental United States, Puerto Rico, St. Croix or St. Thomas and Barbados

Tropical Shipping strives to deliver the best transportation value and is committed to providing the highest levels of service, security and efficiency that our customers have come to expect. 

Due to the increase of the hazardous unstuffing and FAS charges from the Barbados Port Inc, Tropical Shipping will replace the LCL Hazardous Materials Fee with a LCL Cargo Hazardous Materials Surcharge

Effective September 10, 2017, the following LCL Hazardous Cargo Surcharge will be applied for LCL shipments between the Continental United States, Puerto Rico, St. Croix, St. John or St. Thomas and Barbados as follows:

Cargo Type

LCL Hazardous Cargo Surcharge Effective September 10, 2017

LCL Hazardous Cargo

$1.70 CWT / $0.85 CFT

Minimum $15.00 for cargo up to 39 CFT

Note that LCL Hazardous Cargo for Barbados will be exempt from the flat LCL Hazardous Material fee of $40.00 effective September 10, 2017.
