Customer Advisory - North America Inland Fuel Surcharge

Inland Fuel Surcharge to/from United States and Canada

(Florham Park, NJ)... We would like to inform you that for the period beginning December12th, 2021, our Inland Fuel Surcharge (IFS/EFS) will be $40 USD.

Surcharge Calculation

Our Inland Fuel Surcharge is calculated based on the weekly average fuel price published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Any $0.10 increase over the baseline fuel retail price of $2.52 USD per gallon will trigger a review of IFS/EFS. The calculation of cost will be based on fuel change published in EIA and corresponding Hamburg Süd fuel surcharge percentage.

Surcharge Applicability

IFS/EFS surcharge applies for all import and export shipments with a US or Canada Store Door (SD) service.

The Inland Fuel Surcharge will not be applied should the quarterly average fuel retail price on the EIA website from the prior quarter be lower than $2.52 USD. The Inland Fuel Surcharge will be reviewed and updated effective the first day of each quarter: January 1st, April 1st, July 1st, and October 1st

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