TEMPORARY EMERGENCY BUNKER SURCHARGE
*Export Rates Only
The increase in bunker price in 2018 has been significantly higher than what had been expected and has now reached a level of 440 USD/ton in Europe, the highest since 2014, the situation is no longer sustainable without emergency action.
In this way every shipping carrier is therefore introducing a worldwide temporary emergency bunker surcharge (EBS)on all ocean and land-based cargo carriage with immediate effect.
This last-resort measure is essential to ensure that we navigate these challenging economic conditions in a steady and sustainable way and continue to provide a high quality of service to all our customers.
EBS will be applicable to all cargo globally, effective 1st June 2018 for non-FMC corridors and 1st July 2018 for FMC corridors.
From TFW, we have adapted to this new measures, so please consider this additional "increment" in departures since 1st June.
