The present substantial increases in the price of gasoil (Barge), diesel (Truck/Terminal) and electricity (Rail/Terminal), face our hinterland network and our service providers with great financial challenges. In order to be able to maintain our accustomed service, from 21 March 2022 we will have to introduce an Emergency Surcharge.
The Surcharge, which will apply for all combinations of barge, rail and truck transport, as well as for truck delivery without a Contargo main run, will be 25,00 EUR per transported full or empty container. Please note that the Surcharge will apply until further notice, and will be levied and charged in addition to the existing bunker and diesel surcharges.
If full containers are handled at our terminals without a transport (Barge, Rail, Truck) being carried out by Contargo, we will charge a special surcharge of 3.00 EUR.
If further major changes take place in the next few days, we will re-assess the situation.
