North America to Australia Services - Removal of Congestion Charge

(Florham Park, NJ) …We are referring to our Customer Advisory dated September 24, 2020. The operational situation in Sydney is improving, with vessel schedules expected to stabilize from mid-March.

In light of this development, we are pleased to advise that we will be removing the Sydney Port Congestion Surcharge applicable to cargo received for shipment as of March 15, 2021.

Over the past months we have been facing significant schedule disruption as a result of the Sydney congestion and we appreciate your continued support and cooperation as we have managed multiple contingencies to continue to keep the global supply chain moving.

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