Rotterdam and Antwerp barge congestion surcharge

Dear MOL Customer,

Currently both Rotterdam and Antwerp ports have been experiencing an “ongoing capacity shortage” problem, which gives negative impact on the ports’ performance and causes an increase of operational cost for our Barge Vendors.

In response to the situation, MOL regrets to implement a congestion surcharge of EUR 25 per Container on all Carrier’s haulage transports booked by the transport mode Barge via the ports of Rotterdam & Antwerp, with effective date on the 21.07.2017 until further notice.

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.

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