IMO 2020- Surcharge Explained

Dear all our Customers,

As some of you may be aware, there has recently been new IMO2020 regulations. The IMO2020 regulations stand for the transition of environmentally aware low sulphur fuel. Shipping lines have announced they will charge the environmental fuel fee (EFF) from December 1st 2019. Therefore, this surcharge will now appear in our costings whether this is quotations, invoicing etc.

Please be aware this surcharge will vary depending on shipping line. However, Sandford Freight will continue to ensure we are providing the best cost and service possible.

Any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with our sea freight shipping team.
