MSC to apply China Low Sulphur Surcharge

From 1 October 2018, China’s Maritime Safety Administration (MSA) requires vessels operating in the Yangtze River Delta to use low-Sulphur fuel not exceeding 0.5% of Sulphur level, in order to minimize emissions of Sulphur oxides from ships.

Consequently, MSC will apply a China Low Sulphur (CLS) surcharge to all cargoes originated from Europe* destined to the ports of NINGBO and SHANGHAI (including inland destinations) as follows:

  • USD 20 per 20’ & USD 40 per 40’ with effect as from 19 November 2018 (Bill of Lading Date) until further notice.

This surcharge is an additional charge. All other charges listed in company’s EU Price Announcement still apply and remain unchanged.
