GRI shipping

GRI shipping questions? AIT Worldwide Logistics is here to help.

Ocean freight rates fluctuate depending on the volume of cargo and the number of vessels available. A  general rate increase (GRI) is an adjustment of ocean freight rates across all or specific trade routes during a specific time frame.

When a GRI arises, AIT is committed to providing the following to our valued customers served by our robust global logistics network:

  • Consultative Communication -- AIT will maintain open, consultative communication as GRI shipping negotiations unfold, providing the information you need to make prudent decisions based on your business requirements.
  • Continued Competitive Rates -- in the event of a GRI shipping changes, the pricing we ultimately secure for your business will remain at a competitive level.
