Emergency bunker surcharge (EBS) effective 1st June 2018

Following recent announcements, all major ocean carriers are introducing an Emergency Bunker Surcharge (EBS) for Full Container Load (FCL) and Less Container Load (LCL) shipments on all trades. DACHSER therefore sees the necessity to follow the same.
With effective shipping date 1st June 2018 for FCL shipments, EBS will apply to shipments on all non-US related trades; as from 1st July, 2018, EBS will also be applicable to FCL shipments on further destinations as well. For all LCL shipments the implementation date will be 1st June, 2018. EBS is implemented by ocean carriers to compensate their cost of rising bunker price which is a result of the surge in fuel price.
If you need further information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your local DACHSER representative.
