We received the following annoucement from NYK on the dramatic trucking situation in and around Hamburg:


NYK would like to announce an implementation of an emergency truck transport congestion surcharge effective from the 25th July 2014, applicable for all 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.
