Congestion surcharge at Antwerp and Rotterdam ports

The ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam are currently heavily congested due to multiple factors, including the restructure of shipping alliances, raising cargo volume and the usage of bigger vessels. The cyber attack earlier at the end of June worsened the situation.

Severe barge delays are caused by the congestions. To tackle the challenge, barge operators and container carriers now implemented surcharges, effective today until 31 August. The surcharge period would be extended if the situation is not improving.
