At Sealand – A Maersk Company your needs always come first. That’s why we are continuously trying to simplify the way you do business with us. Container damages can happen at any stage of your supply chain, so we decide to introduce a new product to ensure you will not be liable for any damaged equipment (within the coverage limit) and will be protected against financial losses.

As of 14th of February a new surcharge called Container Protect Essential will come into effect, applicable to all shipments imported into Portugal as part of your destination charges.

Container Protect Essential

  • EUR 15/ container*.
  • It is a new product included in quotations as part of our standard offering.
  • New charge covers container repair and cleaning cover up to EUR 125.

Applicable from*

  • For non-Spot bookings the effective date is from the 14th February Price Calculation Date (PCD).
  • For Spot bookings the effective date is 14th February for Estimated Time of Departure (ETD) at the booking confirmation date.

Meanwhile, we will also introduce a new value-added service, called Container Protect Unlimited, which is optional but provides unlimited coverage. You can learn more about Container Protect Essential and Container Protect Unlimited here.
