ESC – European Shippers’ Council

Shippers are concerned about Emergency Bunker Surcharge

The European Shippers’ Council is concerned about the introduction of the Emergency Bunker Surcharge by carriers that took effect 1 June 2018. The surcharge is an additional fee charged to the shipper. Carriers explain the introduction of this surcharge by the rise of the bunker oil price. ESC together with its members are worrying that this new surcharge is going against the GRIs commitment placed by 14 carriers two years ago.
