The Low Sulphur Story will entertain us for a while, here is another one:
Low Sulphur Surcharge USA Trade
Dear valued Customer,
we as Agent of EVERGREEN LINE would like to inform you, that Low Sulphur Surcharge will be implemented in view of International Maritime Organization new environmental regulation to set global sulphur emission limits for marine fuel.
Carriers are required to use low-sulphur fuel with a sulphur content of less than 0.1% in emission control areas. The emission control areas cover North Europe (including the Baltic Sea, North Sea and English Channel) and North America.
The amount of the Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSS) will be determined and updated periodically and will implement as follows:
Tariff: 606 – USA/Europe Trade (Rule: 010-L02)
Effective Date: January 01, 2015 (carrier’s custody)
Unless otherwise specified, all existing Tariff Rates, Special Quotations as well as Service Contracts are subject to Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSS).
In case of any further questions please contact your local Evergreen Team.
