Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSS) January 2020

As from 1 January, all Seatruck shipments will be subject to a new Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSS).

LSS for January is calculated on Platts MGO 0.1% Sulphur content and the £/$ exchange rate (Bank of England).

January calculations are based on the period, 26 Nov – 16 Dec 2019.
(normally this period would cover the 26 Nov – 25 Dec, however due to the Christmas holiday period we have brought this forward)

Costs in LSS may rise or fall, leading to monthly variable charges per metre.

LSS for January 2020 will be £1.72 / €2.03 per metre
