Hamburg Port Authority to raise port fees

Date: 19th October 2023

The Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) will raise port fees by an average of 6.5% from 1 January 2024, due to the continued very high inflation and increased prices.

With the new port fees, the HPA aims to simplify the tariff structure. “For example, the quantity component is eliminated,” it said, “leading to more transparency and less effort on all sides.”

Furthermore, the previously temporary quantum discount will be de-funded, extended and increased in volume, according to HPA’s announcement.

The chief commercial officer of the HPA, stated, “Our aim is to be able to offer our customers in the Port of Hamburg an efficient infrastructure. In order to make this possible, an adjustment of the port fees is necessary in view of the development of construction prices.”

Additionally, HPA announced that in the area of inland waterway shipping and under certain conditions, significant charges will be waived for a limited period until the end of 2028 if the ships in question are operated exclusively with electricity generated in an environmentally friendly manner.

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
