Congestion Surcharge

From time to time, certain ports around the world face congestion due to various reasons such as weather, political issues, strikes etc.

However, due to global trade, it is necessary for the line to service those ports inspite of the congestion.

For the line to offer the service to a congested port, they charge a fee which covers the additional vessel costs associated with delayed berthing windows.

The fee will be applied to cargo that is booked to a congested port.
