Maersk and Hapag-Lloyd are the latest liners to bring in war risk surcharges for cargoes heading in and out of the Arabian Gulf on the back of six tanker attacks in the region over the past two months.

Both carriers have slapped charges of $42 per teu – the highest recorded by Splash so far – for shipments bound for the Middle East.

CMA CGM has put in a place a $36 per teu surcharge, while MSC has put in a $40 per teu surcharge.
