As earlier advised on our home page, the steam-ship lines have implemented a new surcharge EBS (Emergency Bunker Supplement), which has been in force for all sea freight-transports since 1/6/2018. The surcharge will affect all sea freight customers, who going forward will be paying as follows:
USD 62.50 per TEU for standard containers
USD 92.50 per TEU for reefer containers
USD 4.00 per W/M for LCL-shipments
On your next invoice you will therefore see a separate line for the sea freight surcharge EBS.
The surcharge is a consequence of the high jump in prices for fuel and oil in the latest year, which has not been reflected in the steam-ship lines’ BAF standard (Bunker Adjustment Factor), hence the EBS surcharge.
