CaroTrans Export Advisory 19-011 IMO2020 Surcharge 

Issue Date: November 14, 2019

CaroTrans Export Advisory 19-011 IMO2020 Surcharge 

The International Maritime Organization has introduced regulations to limit the Sulphur content in fuel oil used on ships operating outside designated emission control areas to 0.50% m/m (mass by mass) by January 1, 2020. This will significantly reduce the amount of Sulphur oxides emanating from ships and should have major health and environmental benefits for the world, particularly for populations living close to ports and coasts.

 http://www.imo.org/en/MediaCentre/HotTopics/Pages/Sulphur-2020.aspx

Many of our partners have advised that they will begin using low Sulphur fuel as early as October and no later than December to ensure full compliance by 2020. This compliance comes at a significant cost, and our partners have introduced fuel surcharge increases.

To recover these costs, Carotrans is introducing the IMO2020 surcharge effective December 15, 2019:

The surcharge also applies to Transshipment cargo. The surcharge is W/M = 1 CBM/1000 KGS (or 1 CBM/500 KGS for Caribbean and Central America). Min1 CBM.

Carotrans fully supports these environmental efforts. Please contact us with any questions

CaroTrans LCL Export Advisory 19-010 BMSB New Zealand

Issue Date: October 25, 2019

CaroTrans Export Advisory 19-010 BMSB New Zealand – UPDATE

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) fumigation requirements for New Zealand 

-   effective  November 25, 2019

The seasonal measures for Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) regulations are outlined in the  New Zealand’s Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI). The link is below.

New Zealand – https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/1yjSCoV1OZtv5gEvi1GgOH?domain=mpi.govt.nz

Shippers and forwarders should be guided by their consignees and consignees’ customs brokers as to the applicability of the regulation to their shipments. Due to the nature of the requirements, cost for noncompliance and the expense for onshore treatment in New Zealand will be for the account of cargo and could be significant.

The regulation, in short, requires that all shipments deemed as high risk by  MPI standards be treated prior to loading from high risk origin countries of which the USA is named. With consolidated cargo the rule states that if one shipment in the container is considered high risk, the entire container is considered high risk.

For this reason CaroTrans will require that all shippers review the requirements to determine their shipment’s risk and determine whether the cargo requires fumigation. We will require a signed declaration from the shipper to that effect before considering any shipment for loading.

CaroTrans will be providing fumigation services for LCL at our load ports and gateways, and the below measures will be in effect:

-      A completed BMSB form will be required for all shipments.

-      For LCL, shipments deemed as HIGH RISK & LOW RISK by the MPI will be subject to the fee of $30 w/m with a minimum of $100 per shipment.

-      Sulfuryl Fluoride will be the treatment used.

-      If your shipment is deemed to be sensitive to the fumigant and CANNOT be fumigated, please contact your local CaroTrans office for options and service availability prior to booking.

For FCL bookings, please contact your local CaroTrans office to obtain fumigation charges.
