DSV: Customers will be hit by sulfur regulations

There is no way to prevent the new sulfur regulations in Northern Europe from impacting DSV Road's customers. It is still to early to say anything about how much, according to Executive Vice President Poul Nielsen.

Logistics company DSV Road A/S is preparing for the new sulfur regulations set to come into force in 2015, and the carriers are now starting to hint at significant price increases on seaborne cargo transports, Executive Vice President Poul Nielsen tells ShippingWatch:

"This is a significant added cost in terms of energy, and it looks like it will be passed on to customers, as the increase is caused solely by a change in legislation," he says, stressing that in some cases, including to Benelux, customers will have an alternative, for instance by opting for cheaper road transport to the location.
