Dear Valued Customer,

Hamburg Süd would like to inform you about the revision of our Emission Control Area (ECA) surcharge for Q2 2021.

The ECA tariffs have been calculated using the price difference between 0,5% Sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) and 0,1% Sulphur fuel oil (LSMGO). The difference calculated is 41,87 USD/TON. The details on the period and reference ports used for the calculation can be found in the table below.

Fuel type Period ROT SIN PAN Average
VLSFO 26 NOV’20 – 25 FEB'21 411,77 436,96 432,23 426,99

Please note that cargo with origin, destination or transshipment in the Baltic zone (defined as Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and East Coast of Sweden) will be charged with an additional add-on (final tariffs are reflected in table which reads – Baltic).
