Dear Valued Customer,
Hamburg Süd wishes to advise our customers that we are facing a situation of decreasing water levels on the Manaus River. This has resulted in reduction of permissible drafts for all vessels and barge sailing on the river, leading to a significant decrease on cargo carrying capacity.
Due to this situation, Hamburg Süd will be introducing a Low Water Additional surcharge (LWA BARG) effective from 25th October 2021. The surcharge will be applicable to all containers from and into the Port of Manaus, Brazil, based on pro forma date of departure and until further notice. The surcharge levels are as follows:
|Charge code||Cargo Type||Origin||Destination||Container Size/Type||Charge basis||Currency||Levels|
|LWA BARG||Dry & Reefer||World||Manaus, Brazil||20'||per container||BRL||1025|
|LWA BARG||Dry & Reefer||World||Manaus, Brazil||40' (incl. HC)||per container||BRL||2050|
|LWA BARG||Dry & Reefer||Manaus, Brazil||World||20'||per container||BRL||1025|
|LWA BARG||Dry & Reefer||Manaus, Brazil||World||40' (incl. HC)||per container||BRL||2050|
In addition to the Low Water Additional, further price elements will apply:
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,
