WEC Lines reports that port performance at Port Sudan has further deteriorated and there are no signs of improvement ahead. Turn-around time of vessels is very long, exacerbating the build-up of cargo and extending transit times.
The country is also experiencing a shortage of diesel, which results in longer port stays of full containers in the port and there has been several stoppages of the shore cranes due to errors of the mechanism.
Due to these developments WEC are forced to increase the VDS (Vessel Delay Surcharge).
As from B/L date 01-07-2020 applicable VDS will be:
- Euro 275/teu & Usd 300/teu
Please check with Worldwide Movers Africa – Sudan – for any amendments to these charges.
