Dear Valued Customer,
Hamburg Süd wishes to advise our customers that the recent increase in costs for transportation of cargo into Paraguay is causing significant constraints on supply chains.
Over past weeks we have done our outmost to deliver your cargo whilst managing the current situation as best as possible. However, still we are experiencing a significant increase in overall operational costs.
To enable us to continue to connect your supply chain, Hamburg Süd wishes to inform you that we will be implementing a Congestion Fee. The congestion fee will be applicable to all Export and Import containers with origin or destination Paraguay.
Charge applicability and details as follows (based on pro-forma date of departure and until further notice):
1. In case of non-FMC origin/destination: cargo loaded or received for shipment on vessels with ETD 19th Aug 2021 onwards
2. In case of FMC and Colombian origin/destination: cargo loaded or received for shipment on vessels with ETD 1st Sep 2021 onwards

We are monitoring the situation and depending on the development we will determine if further measures need to be taken.
We want to thank you for your business and look forward to continuously serving your transportation needs. If you require more information, please contact your local sales manager or any of our customer service advisors.
With kind regards,
