For details we would like to refer you to the Customer Advisory issued by APMT dated May17, 2017.
The situation has a dramatic impact on the operational performance of the Gothenburg container terminal. Although still operational the reduction in performance is significant, with move count limitations falling short of what is required to meet the needs of the containerized cargoes being imported/exported through Gothenburg. As a result booking restrictions for Gothenburg cannot be avoided.
We are working on alternative solutions such as providing a feeder service to other Swedish terminals including the connection over land to Gothenburg, etc. However we regret to advise that additional costs such as storage costs at the terminal, additional haulage costs, truck waiting times, etc. are all for the account of the cargo.
Considering the above situation we are also forced to increase the Gothenburg Congestion Surcharge to Euro 135 per TEU, with effect Monday May22, 2017.
Please visit our website for related Basic Ocean Freight rates, Bunker surcharge (BAF), Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSF), THC (original or destination), Peak Season surcharges and Security related surcharges which are accessible on our website.
We sincerely regret the inconvenience caused and we hope a solution to the issue can be found soon. In the meantime we will do the utmost to assist you to the best of our abilities. We will revert when we have more news in regards of the alternative routings and schedules.
