Update Emergency Surcharge

In the last few weeks the drastic price increases for electricity, other energy forms and fuels in terminal processes and handling have led to massive increases in costs that we are not able to cover by the originally agreed framework conditions. Since the situation continues to be difficult, we are introducing  some changes on 1 June 2022.
 

1.The Emergency Surcharge levied since 21 March 2022 will be reduced from 25.- € to 10.- € per transported full or empty container, and will continue to apply for all combinations of the transport modes Barge, Rail, Truck, as well as for truck deliveries without a Contargo main run.

2. The special handling surcharge of 3.00 Euro for the handling (from free arrival truck to free on barge, rail, truck and vice versa) of all full containers at our terminals for which a transport (Barge, Rail or Truck) is not carried out by Contargo will continue to be levied, and it will also be charged for the handling of empty containers for which transport is not carried out by Contargo.

Since the rise in energy prices in the rail sector has led to exceptionally strained conditions, on 1 July 2022 we will be introducing an Energy Rail Floater (ERF) to compensate these. The cost of rail electricity makes up more than 20 percent of production costs, and this, too, has risen drastically. Consequently, we are also forced to cover the costs due to the volatile energy prices by a floating rate in addition to the agreed framework conditions. The amount of this compensation per TEU will be reviewed every month and adapted as and if necessary. By the end of May at the latest, we will provide information on the actual amount involved for each train product.

If you have any question and/or require further information, our personnel will be glad to help you.
