Emergency bunker surcharge
Important service announcement
Antwerp / Belgium / June 1st, 2018
Due to an increase of over 20% in bunker costs compared to the beginning of the year, it has been decided by most shipping lines to introduce an Emergency Bunker Surcharge (EBS) for all sea freight. Unfortunately we have no choice but to implement the surcharge in order to ensure a continued service.
On June 1st the surcharge has come into effect to and from all destinations except the USA. The addition for the USA will be charged as from July 1st. The amount of the surcharge depends on the shipping line and the lane.
please contact us for more details on specific situations.
