United States and Canada – Booking Cancellation Fee

(Morristown, NJ)…Due to the increasing number of booking cancellations and the costs associated with handling these cancellations, we need to implement a Booking Cancellation Fee in order to partially recover the cost. Effective March 15th, 2020 Hamburg Süd will implement a Booking Cancellation Fee of $125 per container to be applied as per the below guidelines.

In all cases where a container has been assigned and picked up for a booking which is subsequently cancelled, a $125 fee per container will be assessed. Additionally, the shipper will be responsible for all other charges associated with the use of the equipment such as equipment detention, terminal charges, trucking charges, etc.

Please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions that you may have.
