Dear customer,

Due to a severe imbalance between exports and imports in Israel, and as situation is expected to last, we hereby inform you that Sealand Europe & Med is obliged to revise PED – Equipment Positioning Service Destination Charge from all origins to Israel to cope the growing challenge of empty container evacuation.

The PED will apply to all containers imported to Israel that will be loaded from February 21, 2021 until further notice. The new tariff level is as follows and payment as collect at destination.

PED: USD 200 per container for all cargo

As always, please visit for a quote or contracts, which will provide you with details for the corridors and commodities specific to you. Below is an example of the new rate setup.

  • The above rates are inclusive of Basic Freight Rate (BAS), Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF).
  • The above rates are also subject to other applicable surcharges, incl. local charges and contingency charges.
  • Other corridors, commodities and container types (incl. reefers), that are not listed above, may also be subject to increases. 
  • These rates are unaffected by, and do not affect, any tariff notified, published or filed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.
