Shippers call for transparency on sulfur costs

Ahead of the implementation of the new sulfur regulations on January 1st 2015, the Global Shippers Forum, GSF, informs that the organization has heard virtually nothing from the shipowners. How much will the sulfur regulations cost us, asks Secretary General Chris Welsh.

Shippers are now calling for clarification about how much the sulfur requirements will mean for shippers.

"With one or two notable exceptions, few shipping lines have yet provided information to their customers on their low sulphur fuel strategies and the extra cost to be passed on to shippers via increased rates or bunker surcharges.  With shippers under pressure to finalise freight budgets for 2015, this information is urgently required by customers," says GSF Secretary General Chris Welsh in a statement.
