Due to security restructuration in Abidjan port within the framework of the ISPS Code implementation (International Ship and Port facility Security code) applicable since July 1st, 2004, Abidjan port authorities have decided to charge operators an «ISPS Surcharge». For this reason, a surcharge of USD 16 / EUR 12 / TEU will be charged to customers for all shipments to and from this port. This surcharge will be applied as from April, 1st 2013 (B/L date) for all Arkas Line containers.
If you have any further questions regarding this charge please feel free to contact your local Arkas agent.
