We understand that NYK had problems to get their last announcement approved by the MOT in China. They wanted to start the truck congestion surcharge in Hamburg on July 25th already and were forced to announce again for the start on September 1st as per below:
NYK would like to announce an implementation of an emergency truck transport congestion surcharge effective from the 1st September 2014, applicable for all truck carriers’ haulage transports via Hamburg terminals.
Quantum – EUR 50 per container
We will closely monitor the traffic situation in Hamburg port area and withdraw from this surcharge, as soon as the traffic situation will be back to normal
