Rates for Land Freight

A payment of $1.24 per kilometer for cargo transported from the port to its final destination has been approved in Honduras.

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

An agreement on benchmark rates for land freight transport has been signed by the carriers, chambers of commerce and contract maquila companies.

The agreement establishes a benchmark rate on direct routes of $1.24 per kilometer.

"The rate will apply when the load is received by the National Port Authority and is sent directly to the company or individual importing it" reported LaPrensa.hn.

Benjamin Castro, president of the Chamber of Cargo Transporters in Honduras, Catracho, saw the settlement as fair for transporters and said it "prevents shipping companies from charging users excessively."
