Dangerous Goods Misdeclaration Fee

(Morristown, NJ)… In the interest of the safety of our crew, our vessels, the environment, and our customers’ cargo, Hamburg Süd will start charging a Dangerous Goods Misdeclaration Fee of USD 5,000 per booking, effective as from October 15, 2020 (based on date of cargo receipt at origin).

Failure to properly offer and declare hazardous cargo prior to shipment is a violation of the Hazardous Material Regulations. The Shipper will be held liable and responsible for all costs and consequences resulting from taking necessary corrective action.

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