Storage fee rises lower than previous year after LME urges restraint
December 31, 2013 - 18:25 GMT
Rent increases at LME-approved warehouses will be lower in 2014, after the London Metal Exchange urged warehouses to show restraint, the exchange has said.
Rents will increase by an average of 3% in the year
beginning April 1 2014, compared with 7% a year earlier.
Free-on-Truck charges, the cost to remove metal from
warehouses, will be on average 2% higher year-on-year. This
compares with an 8% rise a year earlier,
the LME said in a notice to members.
