Introduction of temporary surcharge for rail services to/from north and west ports
due to the current known situation in the seaports with delayed ship arrivals and their associated follow-up costs, we must apply a congestion surcharge from the 1st of July 2021 until further notice for the rail connections to/from north and west ports in the amount of 9,00 EUR / TEU. The surcharge is based on additional costs due to, among other things, failure costs due to unfeasible rounds / failure costs due to loading breaches in the seaport terminals / additional port infrastructure costs due to longer residence time and delayed departure.
We hope that the situation will ease again in the near future.
With best regards,
Sales Officer Germany
