Tropical Shipping Establishes an Operational Service Viability Charge - Effective December 6, 2020

As part of our commitment to the customers and the communities we serve, Tropical Shipping strives to deliver the best competitive transportation value. Due to the increasing cost of non-fuel related operational expenses, our ability to sustain and invest in the service you have come to expect has been impacted.

In order to continue to provide the highest quality, on-time shipping services, Tropical Shipping will establish an Operational Service Viability Charge.

The following will be the breakdown by trade for the Operational Service Viability Charge.
