Finnpilot Pilotage BoD decided for no increase in the pilotage fees for 2018

Finnpilot Pilotage says the positive development in the need for pilotage and the effective organizing of the services has made it possible to keep the pilotage fees at their current rate for the next year.

At its meeting on 29 September, the Board of Directors of Finnpilot Pilotage Ltd. decided that there would be no increase in the pilotage fees for 2018, the price level in the Saimaa region will remain at 26% of the pilotage fee charged in coastal waters, and other fees related to the pilotage process, such as the standby, cancellation and order transfer fees, will also remain the same.

The number of pilotage assignments developed positively during 2017. The increase in maritime traffic began to be visible as an increase in pilotage assignments and piloted nautical miles over the second and third quarters, particularly in the Helsinki and Archipelago Sea pilotage areas.
