  • Low Water Surcharge levels according to the Electronic Waterways Information System (Click here www.elwis.de)
  • Export shipments: Date of empty container delivery at customer´s facility
  • Import shipments: Date of pick-up of full container at mainliner´s discharge terminal

These costs are charged to Maersk and will be passed directly to our customers.

Barge transports passing the measuring point “Kaub” are affected due to draft restrictions and other locations might be affected in the near future too.

Kindly note that in case of water levels at Kaub falling below 81cm or Duisburg-Ruhrort below 181cm, we regret that a loading guarantee for your cargo cannot be granted anymore.

The low water situation is an exceptional and unforeseeable situation that is beyond our control and cannot be predicted, neither the severity nor the duration. We appreciate your understanding and support to overcome this extraordinary situation together.

For further information please contact your local Maersk office.
