OOCL is going along their policy of short term notices for changes and increases of rates.

We were informed this morning that they will re- install the trucking congestion surcharge for the port of Hamburg, which in principle is understandable in view to the total chaos that Hamburg officials have created in and around Hamburg.

In April the surcharge was started across the trucking community in Hamburg already, but was then suspended due to anti trust problems.

Now it seems to come back and OOCL announces as follows:

The surcharge amount is set at EUR 30 per transport delivered within Hamburg, Bremen or Bremerhaven city limits and EUR 50 per transport delivered outside of Hamburg, Bremen, Bremerhaven city limits.

Kindly take note and adjust your calculations accordingly.
