Dear valued customers,
Due to the severe equipment shortage in the North European ports (NWC), caused by the global shortage, ZIM will implement an Equipment Shortage Surcharge (ESS) on all export from North Europe (NWC) Ports to all E/MED & B/SEA destinations:
Equipment Shortage Surcharge amount: $100/TEU for Dry cargo
The above shall be implemented as of April 11th, 2021 sailing date, and till further notice.
- Above charges are additional to the applicable base freight charge, THC, bunker, security and PSS related charges which are provided in ZIM's Tariff Calculator as well as other charges for additional services, local charges and contingency charges.
- For further details kindly see our website zim.com or contact our local sales/customer service representative.
- These rates are unaffected by, and do not affect, any tariff notified, published, or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements. For trades subject to the US Shipping Act or the China Maritime Regulations, application is subject to the publication and effective date requirements of those statutes / regulations. Quotations or mitigation of published surcharges that vary from ZIM’s tariff shall not be binding unless included in a service contract or amendment that has been filed with the Federal Maritime Commission ("FMC") or the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, as applicable.
