Deciding on the scope of cover for carbon-reduced shipping is the first step. As a flexible product, you can choose whether your entire contracted volume or only certain bookings, for example on selected corridors, are to be shipped in carbon-reduced manner. Ask your account manager or sales representative to add ECO Delivery as an add-on to your ocean contract. Your respective selection will apply as from the time of booking.
ECO Delivery is priced on the biofuel required to replace the fuel oil that would otherwise have been needed to transport the containers. An ECO Delivery surcharge will be added to your usual Ocean freight invoice and shown in a separate line on your invoice. This means that your existing contract rates for ocean transportation will remain unchanged and a surcharge will only apply to those containers which have been tagged with ECO Delivery and are shipped with reduced carbon emissions accordingly.
