Rescreening Charges for Europe-Bound Cargo from Bangladesh
The European Union (EU) has added Bangladesh to its list of high-risk countries which operate cargo services to the EU. Aircraft carrying cargo directly from Bangladesh into the EU must go now through new screening measures in addition to those already applied by EU ACC3 (Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the Union from a Third Country Airport) regime.
As a result, additional rescreening charges of $0.15/kg will be applied to all cargo being shipped from Bangladesh to EU destinations. Due to this change, an additional one-day transit time will also be applicable to such shipments until further notice.
FedEx Trade Networks will continue to monitor the situation and provide additional information as it becomes available.
