Rotterdam Port to Offer Discount for Tankers

first_imgThe Port of Rotterdam Authority has unveiled its plans to widen and facilitate the Green Award discount for sea-going shipping as of 2019.The port explained that the discount would encourage safe and green shipping in the liquid bulk segment. From 2019 onwards, certified chemical tankers and sea-going vessels with a cargo capacity of less than 20,000 tons may also make use of the scheme, the authority said.Additionally, the port is making the port dues process more customer friendly for shipping lines whose vessels call at the Port of Rotterdam. In close collaboration with the market, the billing process will be quicker and more transparent.The changes to the billing of seaport, buoy and dolphin dues, together with waste charges will be implemented first and are expected to be completed in 2019.As the Port of Rotterdam Authority, Deltalinqs, VRC and VNPI agreed in 2017, the port tariffs for the port of Rotterdam will be increased by 1% in 2019. The port tariffs were then set for the years 2018-2020.In line with the three-year agreement, the Port Authority will adopt the specific measures, such as transhipment discounts for containers, to strengthen Rotterdam’s position as a container hub and the port tariffs for tankers carrying crude oil will be set at 1.5% below the general increase.The tariffs apply to the seaports of Rotterdam, Schiedam, Vlaardingen, Maassluis, Dordrecht, Papendrecht, Zwijndrecht and Moerdijk.last_img read more
