Adjustment of Emergency Bunker Surcharge

The EBS (Emergency Bunker Surcharge) which was introduced in May will be adapted to the current market situation as of December 1, 2018:

  • FCL: EUR 110,- per TEU
  • LCL: EUR 4,50 per cubic meter (w/m)

The EBS is applicable on all trade lanes.

Due to the volatility of fuel prices and in view of the new emission regulations (IMO 2020), it will no longer be possible to include the BAF (Bunker Adjustment Factor) in the sea freight rate. The fuel surcharge will be adapted in correspondence with the rate development on a monthly basis (v.a.t.o.s.).
