UPDATE Congestion in Antwerp and Rotterdam
At present, average waiting times for the handling of our barges in the seaports are:
Antwerp: 26 hours
Rotterdam: 27 hours
Thanks to a slight improvement in the situation at the western seaports, on 1 January 2020 Contargo will be in a position to reduce the Congestion Surcharge for container transports via the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp from 19.50 € to 15.00 € per container/direction. As well as using dedicated barges, establishing several fixed windows at terminals in Rotterdam, and adapting the sailing schedules of our barges, we have succeeded in introducing transport process optimisations. We are now glad to be able to pass this cost reduction on to you.
