Update for cargo from/into Sydney, Australia - Removal of Congestion Charge

Dear Valued Customer,

We would like to inform you that the operational situation in Sydney is improving, with vessel schedules expected to stabilize from mid-March.

In light of this development, we are pleased to advise that we will be removing the Sydney Congestion Fee, applicable to cargo loaded or received for shipment (in case of FMC origin/destination) on vessels with from ETD 15th March 2021, based on pro forma date of departure.

Over the past months we have been facing significant schedule disruption as a result of the Sydney congestion and we appreciate your continued support and cooperation as we have managed multiple contingencies to continue to keep the global supply chain moving.

Please contact your local Hamburg Süd office should you require more information.

With kind regards,
Hamburg Süd
