Dear Customer,

This is a notification of the introduction of winter surcharge for our European Ports.


A) Winter surcharge.
The upcoming (Russian) winter season poses substantial ‘’challenges’’ operational wise. As your transportation provider, it’s our goal to maintain our frequency and best possible transit times.

The Winter surcharge will be applicable to all vessels / voyages departing on or after 1st December 2015; up to and including 30th April 2016 (departure dates ex loading ports).

B) St. Petersburg THC and THC Winter surcharge.
The terminals FCT/First Container Terminal and Ust-Luga ULCT/Ust-Luga Container Terminal increased their container handling charges and added a THC Winter surcharge on top of EUR23/Unit.
