A.P. Moller – Maersk previously communicated that rises in energy costs had brought about the need to introduce an Emergency Inland Energy Surcharge for all inland transportation to minimize supply chain disruption. Since then, we have continued to evaluate the market in the hopes of inflated rates coming down and being able to pass these cost reductions on to our customers.
We take great pride in serving your integrated logistics needs and do our utmost to ensure your supply chain moves with agility, connectivity and ease. We are constantly monitoring market situations and reacting with the overall goal of optimising efficiency and cost-effectiveness in your logistics operations.
Fuel prices have recently decreased in Italy. As such, we are able to reduce the Emergency Inland Energy Surcharge, effective as of 1st May 2023.
It will be applied as follows*:
- Direct truck transport: 7% over inland standard tariff
- Rail combined intermodal transport: 5% over inland standard tariff
*For FMC, surcharges will be applicable from 1st June 2023 as per FMC regulations.
Price calculation date (PCD):
For Non-FMC shipments, PCD is the Estimated Time of Departure (ETD) of the first vessel in the latest booking confirmation issued upon customer request.
For FMC shipments, PCD is the date on which Maersk A/S or one of its authorised agent(s) takes possession of the last container listed on the transport document.
For Import shipments (i.e. inland leg at destination port hired later to cargo departure from origin port) the surcharge price calculation refers to Vessel Arrival date at cargo destination port.
Note: FMC regulated trades are shipments exiting or entering a port in the United States, Guam, US Virgin Islands, American Samoa or Puerto Rico (US).
Contractual customers under the Fuel Adjustment Factor (FAF) model are exempt from the Emergency Inland Energy Surcharge (EEE/EEI).
The surcharge will continue to be used to accommodate additional costs presented by our vendors, secure capacity in the market and ultimately ensure a continued and sustainable inland transportation service for our customers. We will, of course, keep monitoring the situation on a country-by-country basis and make the necessary changes as market circumstances dictate. When energy prices return to previous levels, the surcharge will be withdrawn.
Surcharge codes will be presented on invoices as “EEE” (Emergency Inland Energy Surcharge Export) and “EEI” (Emergency Inland Energy Surcharge Import).
We appreciate your trust and loyalty and look forward to continuing to assist you on all matters pertaining to your logistical needs.
