Due to recent unexpected and very significant increases in key factors impacting operational costs of the container shipping industry, Hamburg Süd is implementing an emergency charge globally.
For exports from China, Hamburg Süd will introduce an emergency Peak Season Surcharge (PSS). The surcharge will apply to all export shipments on all trades from China, and it will be effective 1st June 2018 and until further notice. For export shipments to the US and Puerto Rico, the emergency PSS will be effective 1st July and until further notice.
This is a necessary action to ensure a continued sustainable service to our customers. The emergency charge level will be reviewed as and when significant increases or reductions of key shipping cost elements occur.
The surcharge tariff is as follows:
|Equipment Type*||20’ DRY||40’ DRY/HQ/NOR||20’RF||40’RF|
|In USD per unit||USD 60||USD 120||USD 90||USD 180|
The above amounts refer to the base rates, are including BAF and PSS and are subject to:
