Strike in Spanish ports – Spain Congestion Surcharge

Dear MOL Customer,

We regret to advise that the Spanish dockworkers unions have announced to go on strike in all ports in Spain on June 5, 7 and 9, 2017 and possibly thereafter.

Vessels calling the Spanish ports during this period, and shortly thereafter, will be affected. Considering the above situation we are forced to implement a congestion surcharge of EUR 16 per TEU.

The said surcharge will apply to all loading and discharging moves in Spanish ports. The surcharge shall stay in force until the industrial action is formally withdrawn and the situation normalized for a sustained period.

Please visit our website for related Basic Ocean Freight rates, Bunker surcharge (BAF), Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSF), THC (origin or destination), Peak Season surcharges and Security related surcharges which are accessible on our website.

We sincerely regret the inconvenience caused and we hope a solution to the situation will be found soon. In the meantime we will do the utmost to assist you to the best of our abilities.  

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact your local sales office. Contact details can be found on our website
