Maersk Line implements Low Water Surcharge for the terminals on Rhine River
The low water situation on the Rhine River remains unsustainable and the water level at Kaub has reached a new record-low (<30 cm) last week, severely impacting operations to the extent that barges are no longer able to pass the “Kaub” measuring point., Maersk said in a media release.
As result, a low water surcharge of EUR 320/20’* and EUR 425/40’* is applicable as from today, November 1, 2018, as long as the water level at Kaub remains below 61cm according to the Electronic Waterways Information System.
*Export shipments: Date of empty container delivery at customer´s facility
*Import shipments: Date of pick-up of full container at mainliner´s discharge terminal
Low water surcharge is to be applied for transport performed by barge via the following terminals:
Woerth am Rhein
Mainz / Ginsheim-Gustavsburg
Frankfurt am Main
Weil am Rhein
