Seems that there is enough water in the St Lawrence river or the Low Water Surcharge cannot be maintained as being true anymore….:




For and on behalf of our principal MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A., Geneva, we like to inform you that the water level of the St. Lawrence River improved, consequently




MSC will terminate the Low Water Surcharge with effect from the sailing of MV “OOCL Belgium – 39W47” etd. November 20, 2014 (ANR)



for all imports via the port of Montreal from North Europe, Mediterranean and Black Sea.

Should the water level once again fall below the required level, MSC reserves the right to re-introduce the Montreal Low Water Surcharge with an appropriate amount.
